Call Your Representative and Senators and Voice Your Support for a Bipartisan Investigation into Russian Election Hacking

While there were reports throughout the election that Russian hackers were involved in the DNC email leak and other cyber-attacks, in the past few days, those whispers have become shouts. A Washington Post article claims that the CIA believes that Russia was hacking the DNC and other political groups with the express intent of helping elect Donald Trump to the presidency.

Since then, there has been a bipartisan call to investigate these claims, which is not being vocally supported by Speaker Ryan or Senate Majority Leader McConnell. Trump has indicated that he thinks raising these suspicions is simply the Democrats being sore losers about the election. Show him that the American people believe that potential Russian involvement in our political system is not a partisan issue, and that all Americans should be concerned about this issue.

Call your rep TOMORROW (or today, if it’s a weekday when you read this) and let them know that you strongly support a bipartisan review of Russia’s possible meddling with the 2016 Presidential election.

Ask the House Oversight Committee to Investigate Russia’s Possible Influence on the Election

House Rep. Elijah Cummings (D – Maryland) has asked House Oversight Committee Chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, asking for a bipartisan review of possible Russian interference with the 2016 Presidential Election. While this is not likely to change the outcome of the election, it’s still a vital step in the protection of our democracy and its systems.

Per a CNN article covering the letter:

The Democrat congressman said that though the hacks were on Democratic groups, the outrage at Russia’s actions should be bipartisan.
“Elections are the bedrock of our nation’s democracy,” Cummings wrote. “Any attempt by a foreign power to undermine them is a direct attack on our core democratic values, and it should chill every member of Congress and American — red or blue — to the core.”
Call Rep. Chaffetz and the House Oversight Committee and request that the Committee take action into reviewing this possible interference by calling 202-225-5074 & (801) 851-2500, and let them know that you support a bipartisan review into Russian activity surrounding the election.
