Washington, DC- As questions mount on whether the White House has engaged in a cover-up and obstruction of justice in the Russia investigation, March For Truth announced it now has more than 100 events planned across the country, and two in Europe, to demand answers.

The march in Chicago will take place June 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Daley Plaza. More information at the link: www.marchfortruthchi.org .

March For Truth is a national coalition of activist groups and grassroots, local organizers demanding that leaders in government defend the rule of law, fully investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election and the role of Donald Trump and his associates, and investigate Donald Trump's motives for possibly interfering in the investigation.

Across the country, peaceful demonstrations are arranged on Saturday, June 3rd. The demands of the March are simple:

An independent commission must be established and Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests;

As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;

Congress should require Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;

If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.

National Partner organizations include Women's March, MoveOn, Town Hall Project, OurStates, Free Speech for People, Rock the Vote, Progressive Democrats of America, Lawyers for Good Government, Swing Left, Working Families Party, Stand Up America, Action Group Network, and flippable. Organizing partners include Wisconsin Progressives Alliance, Indivisible St. Louis, Indivisible San Bernardino, We March Party, Indivisible Charleston, Indivisible Chicago, United We Stand, Indivisible Eugene, Resist616, March on Montana, Indivisible Las Vegas, Indivisible Omaha, United Against Trump Pence, Pop Up Protest South Florida, Indivisible RI, Carson City Working Families Party, Northern Nevada Marches Forward, Indivisible Northern Nevada, Action Together Nevada, Get Involved Nevada, Indivisible Richmond, Persisterhood of Saint Joseph, CNY Solidarity, among many others.

QUOTES FROM PARTNERS:

"Women's March organizers in states across the nation are working alongside local chapters of the March For Truth to make sure that June 3rd is a call for all Americans to come together as one and march to protect the very foundation of our democracy," said Bob Bland of the Women's March.

"Across the country, constituents have flooded town halls to let their representatives know that they want impartial investigations into Russian interference in our elections," said Jimmy Dahman, executive director of Town Hall Project. "Transparency is critical to the democratic process, and we are proud to partner with the #MarchForTruth in holding Congress accountable to the people that elected them."

"The allegations that President Trump or members of his team may have coordinated with the Russian government to influence the 2016 election are the most explosive charges in American political history," said Ron Fein, Legal Director of Free Speech For People. "The American people deserve and demand a credible independent investigation."

"It's clear that Michael Flynn, who was compromised by the Russians, would still be in the White House if it weren't for leaks, yet that's all that the GOP seems to want to focus on in the #RussiaGate hearings," said Andrea Chalupa, author, activist and #MarchForTruth organizer. "What more is this administration hiding? With our nation's sovereignty at stake, it's time for Republican leaders to put country before party just like they did during the Watergate scandal."

"If we learned anything from Sally Yates' testimony, it's that this administration has ignored attempts by loyal public servants to bring transparency. We must have full transparency throughout this investigation," said Jordan Uhl, #MarchForTruth organizer and Executive Director of The Opposition ( oppstn.com ). "We're supporting this nationwide, grassroots movement because we believe the American people want an honest, independent inquiry and, ultimately, answers."

"Since the inauguration of President Trump, The Russian hacking of our election and potential subsequent collusion with members of the Presidential campaign has cast a pall over the entirety of the administration," said Josef Preston, Indivisible Charleston Legislative Coordinator. "It is only natural that the people want to get to the bottom of this matter, so American democracy can be reestablished as a shining beacon of light around the world. The world and the people need closure."

"This isn't about party. This is about rule of law, and potentially egregious conflicts of interest within the Executive Branch," saidDonna Smith, Executive Director of Progressive Democrats Of America. "Congress must do its job legitimately, and invest serious resources into a bipartisan investigation into Russian ties with the White House, and those within the administration's direct sphere of influence. If it can't happen within Congress, then a special prosecutor must be named, and we must get to the truth, one way or the other, in a transparent and public way."

"The Trump Administration began under a cloud of deception, winning an election tainted by foreign influence. In Chicago, we will stand indivisible in the fight for Truth." said Jason Rieger, founder Indivisible Chicago. "We will rally downtown and march to Trump Tower to push back against the endless barrage of lies emanating from the White House."
