March For Truth
We are asking Montanans across the state to join the march we have all been waiting for since the night of the election. There is more than sufficient cause for alarm about the role Russian state-led hacking and information warfare played in the 2016 election, and there are crucial unanswered questions about the relationship between the Russian state and Donald Trump, his associates and his campaign. The legitimacy of the United States government may hinge on the answers to these questions. If the President was elected even in part due to collusion with a foreign effort to interfere in our democratic process, then the will of the people has been subverted.
There is an active FBI investigation into these matters, and revelations may emerge any moment. But Congressional investigations in the House and Senate have been slow, under-resourced, and mired in partisan politics. Many Congressional leaders have called for an independent investigation, a special prosecutor or a commission to fairly investigate these concerns. Despite the clear will of the people, their calls have not been answered.
Therefore, we call for a #MarchForTruth to raise our voices and let our elected leaders know that American citizens want answers. The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. So, we will rise together to call for a fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.
Across the country, peaceful demonstrations are being arranged on Saturday, June 3rd. Our goals are simple:
1. Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests, or an independent investigation must be established;
2. As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;
3. Donald Trump should release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;
4. If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.
Please join us in Helena and make this march rival the Women’s March! We need to make this a big event by joining with sister marches across the nation on this same day to demand a thorough and nonpartisan investigation. We have just started working on this – check this page as more details will be forthcoming.
