CONGRESSMAN NEAL CALLS FOR A BIPARTISAN INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
(WASHINGTON) Congressman Richard E. Neal released the following statement today calling for a bipartisan investigation into allegations that the Russian government deliberately interfered in the 2016 presidential election.
“The most senior national security and law enforcement officials in the country have said that Russia interfered in the presidential election to help determine its outcome. The United States intelligence community, including the CIA, believes the integrity of our electoral system was put at risk due to Russian cyberattacks. Under no circumstances can we let our democratic process be threatened, undermined or manipulated by a foreign government. That is why I strongly support a bipartisan congressional investigation into these serious allegations. I strongly believe every American has the right to know the degree to which the Kremlin may have influenced the 2016 elections through these troubling hacks,” said Congressman Richard E. Neal.
