Video/article of Wyden town hall from Saturday. He is working for all of America, not just Oregon.

Russia, taxes and Trump take center stage during Ron Wyden's town hall in Oregon City

(Article plus video of entire town hall)

Sen. Ron Wyden touched on various state and national issues, ranging from the Affordable Care Act to voter registration, during his town hall meeting at Oregon City High School Saturday morning.

But it was a nuclear superpower 5,000 miles away that earned the crowd of 2,000's most visceral reactions.

"Your constituents want you to hold the Republicans -- your counterparts in the Senate -- we want you to hold their feet to the fire," Mary Stewart said when she was given the mic by one of Wyden's aides. "We want an investigation and we want it now."

Claps and stomps thundered through the school gymnasium 10 minutes before the meeting's end when she asked the senator to withhold consent from "business as usual" in D.C. until a full investigation into President Donald Trump's alleged ties to the foreign nation was complete.


THe first question is about Russia with a lengthy answer, but there are many more questions where he goes into more depth about it. The whole thing is excellent and he is very engaging throughout.
