PROTECT OUR NATIONAL SECURITY: CONDEMN SECURITY CLEARANCE REVOCATIONS AND STOP RUSSIAN ELECTION MEDDLING

On Wednesday, Trump abruptly revoked ex-CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance and threatened that of nine other senior intelligence officials who’d criticized him or been involved in Mueller investigation. This decision harms national security. It cuts off critical resources for current intelligence officials and emboldens our adversaries by signaling Trump’s mistrust of our national security agencies.

There’s no question Russia interfered in 2016 elections – stealing voter data, attempting to access voting systems in 21 states, conducting cyber-attacks against Clinton. By ignoring these allegations when meeting Putin in Helsinki, Trump emboldened Russia to repeat its attacks—which is already happening.

Russia’s pervasive election meddling must be attacked on multiple fronts

  • Sufficiently fund making elections secure
  • Boost cyber-defenses
  • Severely punish those interfering

Along with shoring up election security, pending legislation (S.3336 and HR.6437) imposes severe sanctions on Russia that will continue until all election interference ceases.

Congress must respond forcefully to these national security threats — strongly condemning revocation of Brennan’s security clearance and immediately enacting:

  • Defending American Security from Russian Aggression Act (S.3336), imposing crushing sanctions, increasing defenses against cyber-activities, securing voting systems
  • Secure America from Russian Interference Act (HR.6437)

Time is of the essence. The midterms’ integrity is at stake.
