July 13, 2018
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC— Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) today released the following statement on the indictments of 12 Russian Intelligence officials for hacking into the DNC, DCCC, and Clinton campaign and interfering in the 2016 US elections:

“26 Russian nationals. 12 Russian intelligence officers. Five Americans, including four senior members of the Trump campaign. Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation is working to uncover the truth about Russia’s attacks on our democracy during the 2016 elections. It needs to continue unimpeded by political interference. House Republicans must immediately stop their puzzling efforts to undermine the probe and discredit American law enforcement agencies. The indictments today make it crystal clear that Russian conspirators attacked our democracy and communicated with Americans to do so. President Trump should absolutely not meet alone with Putin under these circumstances.”
