WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15) on Wednesday launched a webpage detailing Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, links between President Trump and his associates and Russia, Russia’s undemocratic actions and human rights violations, Russia’s influence on U.S. foreign policy, and most importantly, what we can do about it.
“Russia is not our friend. They attacked our democracy. Yet, President Trump resists this finding, even though every day we continue to hear more about his team’s ties with Russia,” said Swalwell. “We need to get to the bottom of this and understand what the political, personal, and financial ties are between President Trump, his team, and Russia. This website helps to connect the dots between Russia and the President and his team.”
The webpage can be found here.
Swalwell and Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD-07), the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, have introduced H.R. 356, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, which would establish a 12-member, bipartisan, independent commission to investigate Russia’s attempts to interfere in and influence the 2016 elections and find a solution for how to prevent this from happening in the future.
