Filmmaker and activist Michael Moore is calling on the Democratic Party to declare a "national emergency" over the revelation that the FBI is investigating possible "coordination" between President Trump's campaign and Russia.

"For the first time in our history, the president of the United States and his staff are under investigation for espionage," Moore wrote in an Instagram post.

He said that this is a "shock to our democracy," and Democratic lawmakers must take appropriate steps.

"The Democratic leadership in the House and Senate needs to bring a halt to all business being done in the name of this potential felony suspect, Donald J. Trump," Moore wrote.

He said that no bill Trump supports and no Supreme Court nominee he has named should be decided while he is under a "criminal investigation."

"Fellow citizens, demand the Democrats cease all business," Moore said.

He concluded his post with a Richard Nixon quote: "The American people have a right to know if their president is a crook."
