Congressman Cedric Richmond is calling for an investigation into President Trump's ties with Russia.
The congressman, who is the leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, said in a statement yesterday that, quote, "the Trump administration has demonstrated that they do not take [[ national security ]] seriously. Since they don't, Congress must."
The statement came amid fallout from a story published in The New York Times Tuesday that says members of the Trump campaign contacted the Russian government during the 2016 election campaign.
