Let’s not mince words: in the fall of 2016, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin and his agents attacked our country. Their interference in our election was an attack on our democracy and on our national security. The American people deserve not only answers about what happened and who was involved, but also to know that their government is doing everything in its power to hold the perpetrators responsible and ensure it never happens again. As Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, we are united in demanding action. The Committee recently held a hearing focused on Russia’s disinformation efforts. This is an important topic worthy of our attention, but it pales in comparison to Russia’s criminal interference with American democracy.
