Washington( CNN) The former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee told Wednesday that reported bilateral relations between President Donald Trump's campaign aides and Russia amounted to collusion.

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told CNN's Erin Burnett on “OutFront” the media reports necessitated an “independent, bipartisan investigation.”

“With every happen day, it gets more and more disturbing, and more and more evidence that there was collusion, ” Wasserman Schultz told. “This involves, it begs, it cries out for and independent, bipartisan investigation. And Donald Trump should be the first person asking for one, but since I think he likely was part of it, it's not surprising that hasn't happened.”
