MONTH DAY, 2017
The Honorable REPRESENTATIVE
United States Congress
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Congressman LAST NAME,
I am writing in regards to the recent reports of contact between officials of the Trump administration and Russian intelligence officers during the 2016 presidential campaign. These reports are the latest development in the ongoing story of Russia’s efforts to interfere in our election, the extent to which is still unclear.
I urge you to do everything in your power to compel the Trump administration to appoint an independent prosecutor to investigate its relationship with Russian officials during and after the campaign. A bi-partisan coalition in Congress could block the administration’s legislative initiatives unless and until Attorney General Sessions appoints a special counsel.
I cannot overstate the importance of this investigation. Our nation cannot survive if Congress sits idly by while the executive branch colludes with a foreign power that aims to destroy our democracy by compromising our senior officials and undermining our national security.
Thank you for your service to the people of New York and the United States of America.
