Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up. Trump putting himself above the law is a threat to our democracy, and we’ve got to get Congress to stop him.

The Artesian Commons Park has been closed down by Paul Simmons on August 24, 2018. The “No Sit no Lie” ordinances are being more rigorously enforced than usual.
