DNC on Senate Intelligence Briefing

In response to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s press briefing today, DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson released the following statement:

“The Senate Intelligence Committee has reaffirmed the findings of our intelligence community: Russia meddled in our election to help Trump win. The only people who have not accepted this conclusion are Donald Trump and his cronies, who have spent more than a year ignoring a grave threat to our democracy while going out of their way to cover for Putin.

“The committee also confirmed that Russia continues to exploit social media and fake news to influence Americans and create chaos in our democratic process.  There’s little doubt that Russia is determined to interfere in future elections.  It is time for the President to take this national security threat seriously.  Our government must take serious steps to prevent foreign attacks on our democracy from ever happening again.”
