January 23, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15), Ranking Member of the CIA Subcommittee of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement regarding new reports of investigations into President Trump’s associates’ contacts with Russia:

“News reports of an active investigation of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russian officials – the latest of at least four Trump associates probed for such contacts – intensifies concern that the campaign and transition team communicated and possibly coordinated with the Russian government. Now more than ever, we need an independent, bipartisan commission – as our H.R. 356, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, would provide – to complement full investigations by the law enforcement and intelligence communities. For the sake of our national security and future elections, it’s long past time that we put country above party.”
