More investigation needed about Russian interference in our democratic elections

Posted 25 June 2019 at 9:46 am


The Mueller Report stated that Paul Manafort, President Trump’s campaign manager, shared polling data with Konstantin Kilimnik, who the FBI assesses to have ties to Russian intelligence. Furthermore, the Mueller Report states that leaked documents, stolen from the Democratic National Committee, were timed to undermine the 2016 Presidential election and harm candidate Clinton.

The Mueller Report also states, “The investigation did not always yield admissible information or testimony, or a complete picture of the activities undertaken by subjects of the investigation. Some individuals invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and were not, in the Office’s judgment, appropriate candidates for grants of immunity. The Office limited its pursuit of other witnesses and information – such as information known to attorneys or individuals claiming to be members of the media – in light of internal Department of Justice Policies.”

Since the Mueller Report did not fully pursue witnesses and testimony and we know Russia systematically interfered with our democratic elections it is time for a fully televised investigation.
