Yesterday, Donald Trump and Republicans like Congressman Devin Nunes weaponized classified intelligence in a blatant attempt to undermine the Russia investigation.
As you well know, this had nothing to do with transparency and everything to do with playing politics with national security. It is just wrong.
We cannot allow political gain and expediency to discredit the investigation into Russia’s influence in our elections and the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.
That’s why we need to fight back today and pressure the Republicans to remove Rep. Devin Nunes — who has acted in bad faith for well over a year now — from the House Intelligence Committee and demand they protect the Russia investigation from any political interference from the White House.
Sign my urgent petition demanding Paul Ryan and the Republicans remove Devin Nunes from the House Intelligence Committee and work with us to protect the Russia investigation from political interference. Add your name by clicking here.
I will continue to support the brave men and women in our law enforcement — including the Special Counsel — who must be given the independence to do their job and find the truth, free of political interference. I hope you join me in this fight.
Thanks for everything you do,
U.S. Senator, California
