Reaction is coming in after the report that Russia is already meddling in the 2020 election with the intent to re-elect Donald Trump. That reaction is pretty one-sided. We can’t find much concern from the Republican side of the aisle, but leading Democrats sure have plenty to say about the threat.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tweeted:
American voters should decide American elections — not Vladimir Putin. All Members of Congress should condemn the President’s reported efforts to dismiss threats to the integrity of our democracy & to politicize our intel community.
Rep. Adam Schiff, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee remarked:
We count on the intelligence community to inform Congress of any threat of foreign interference in our elections. If reports are true and the President is interfering with that, he is again jeopardizing our efforts to stop foreign meddling. Exactly as we warned he would do.
