Washington, D.C. -- Today Rep. Dina Titus of Nevada's First Congressional District issued the following statement after President Donald Trump compromised highly classified code-word intelligence to the Russian Foreign Minister and Ambassador in the Oval Office last week. 

“In less than a week, President Trump fired the man leading an FBI investigation into his campaign’s possible collusion with Russia and revealed classified information to the foreign government at the heart of the inquiry. His recklessness is why I am supporting legislation to establish an outside, independent commission to investigate President Trump. Americans want and deserve to know the truth about the president’s dangerous behavior. I call on my Republican colleagues to put our democracy ahead of blind loyalty to their disgraceful standard bearer.”
