For Immediate Release Obama Administration Joining Investigations of Russian Hacking & Meddling in 2016 Election

Statement of Karen Hobert Flynn, Common Cause President

Posted on December 9, 2016

“President Obama lends important muscle to the investigation that must begin now in any involvement by any foreign agent in the 2016 election. With Senators McCain and Graham announcing hearings after the first of the year, the President’s investigation can inform the congressional efforts and ensure that this effort is not about partisan power games, but about preserving and protecting the integrity of our elections by learning everything we can through these investigations and improving security moving forward.”

Common Cause is a nonpartisan grassroots organization dedicated to upholding the core values of American democracy. We work to create open, honest, and accountable government that serves the public interest; promote equal rights, opportunity, and representation for all; and empower all people to make their voices heard in the political process.
