WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Eric Swalwell, ranking member of the CIA Subcommittee of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, participated in the new documentary film “Active Measures” detailing Russia’s interference in America’s 2016 presidential election and its long-standing ties to President Donald Trump.

Swalwell (CA-15) was interviewed about his role and findings in the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation of Russia’s interference on behalf of the Trump campaign. The film was released Friday.

“I’m happy to have helped in the creation of this important film detailing the urgent need for us to protect our democracy,” Swalwell said.

Swalwell is co-author of H.R. 356, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, which would create an independent, bipartisan-appointed commission to examine foreign interference in the 2016 election and develop recommendations for preventing such interference in the future.
