March for Truth protesters demand answers on Russian interference, ties to Trump

(FOX NEWS/WTXF) - Protesters are marching Saturday in nearly 130 U.S. cities to call for what they consider the need for more thorough federal investigations into whether President Trump's associates colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential elections.

The protests -- including ones in Washington and outside of Trump's golf club in Bedminster, N.J. -- began early Saturday and have so far been without incident.

Organizers for the "March for Truth" rallies Saturday say their objective is to "let our elected leaders know that Americans want answers."

Organizers also say their primary goals include getting an independent commission established for the Russia investigations, keeping the public as informed as possible and getting Congress to demand that Trump release his tax returns.

Meanwhile, a Pro-Trump rally called "Pittsburgh Not Paris Event for President Trump" is being held Saturday in northern Virginia.

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris," Trump said Thursday in announcing that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, in which industrial nations have agreed to limit greenhouses gases.

In what some saw as a nod to his campaign promise to revitalize the country's coal industry, Trump also said, "It is time to put Youngstown, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan and Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, along with many, many other locations within our great country before Paris."
