DUTCH'S DISPATCH




I never thought I would see the day a U.S. President sided with a foreign adversary over our own intelligence agencies -- but that’s what President Trump did this summer.

Even though top experts in the CIA, FBI, and NSA said otherwise, President Trump stood next to Vladimir Putin and said he believed Putin’s claim that Russia didn’t interfere in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Not only does the U.S intelligence community unanimously agree that Russia interfered, special counsel Robert Mueller recently indicted 12 Russians for their role in it. Trump desperately tried to fix his comments by contradicting himself later, but it was too little and too late.

Now it appears Russia is at it again. Both the FBI director and the director of national intelligence said Russia is actively trying to interfere in our midterm elections.

A cornerstone of our democracy is under attack. Sign on to demand that Congress hold Russia accountable and protect our elections from foreign interference.

President Trump is putting his own ambition and pride over our country.

Mueller found that Russian operatives were actively trying to boost Trump’s campaign by smearing Hillary Clinton’s. President Trump refuses to admit this even if it means dismissing our intelligence agencies in favor of cozying up to Putin.

We’re two months away from the midterms. No matter what Trump does -- we need to make every effort to assure the 2018 elections will be free and fair.

Add your name to demand Congress protect our elections and hold Russia accountable.

Thank you,

Dutch
