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

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.

House Intelligence Minority Memo Must be Secured & Released - Americans Deserve the Truth

The American people must have the truth about the Russia-Trump investigation. The DOJ must work with Intelligence Committee staff of both parties to make any legitimate redactions to the minority memo as soon as possible and then release it. Americans deserve the truth, not a cover-up.

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

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.

Nunes Memo Release Irresponsible and Blatantly Partisan with a Matter of National Security

Americans deserve the truth about the full scope of the Russia investigation, not a short memo that peddles a Trump transition team member’s selectively-sourced conspiracy theories. 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.

Trump Bets Against Voters: Ignores Russia's Attack on Our Democracy

President Trump bet against the American people tonight. He is wagering Americans will forget our democracy was attacked by Russia and that his administration has done nothing to prevent further attack. He believes we will overlook his attempt to obstruct the investigation into his campaign and administration's connections to Russia.

Speaker Ryan Must Curb House Intelligence Chair’s Efforts to Undermine FBI Russia Investigation

Americans deserve to know the truth about the Russian attacks on the 2016 presidential election but House Intelligence Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) has made every effort – including tonight -- to discredit the investigation and whitewash what has already come to light.
