February 16, 2018
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer today released the following statement regarding special counsel Mueller’s indictments of Russian nationals and organizations for meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections:
“Special Counsel Mueller’s indictments are further proof that Vladimir Putin directed a campaign to interfere with our elections, with the goal of tipping the outcome.
“Given these indictments, President Trump should implement the sanctions that Congress has passed immediately. The indictments are also a reminder that Russia will continue to try to interfere in our Democracy. The administration needs to be far more vigilant in protecting the 2018 elections, and alert the American public any time the Russians attempt to interfere.”
