New Russia Investigation Indictments Hammer Home Need to Support Special Counsel’s Investigation

February 16, 2018

Americans expect and deserve to know the truth about the Russian attacks on our democracy. Today’s indictments provide more of that truth and hammer home the seriousness of the attacks and the need to support and protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation. We are hopeful that these new facts will finally drive the White House and those in Congress who have worked to hamper the investigation to admit the reality and the scope of the attack and the threat from Russia which is ongoing today as we approach our next election.

In Wake of Nunes-Russia Memo Release, White House Should Clear Schiff Memo on Russia Investigation for Release Expeditiously

February 5, 2018

Americans deserve the facts about the Russian attack on the 2016 election and the ongoing investigation, and the White House owes the American people answers. The Trump Administration should move quickly to clear the release of the House Intelligence Committee Democratic members’ response to the Nunes memo. The Republican memo has been widely discredited for cherry-picking facts in an attempt to undermine the FBI and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of the Russian attacks. Americans should be presented with the facts, not conspiracy theories hatched by a member of the Trump transition team.

But now that the committee's GOP-commissioned memo has been released, despite the FBI’s "grave concerns" regarding its accuracy, the Democrats’ memo rebutting it and the material underlying both must be made public immediately.
