Protect Elections from Foreign Interference

We now know that on numerous occasions foreign actors sought to assist the Trump Campaign during the 2016 presidential election.  For example, the Trump family has acknowledged that Russia offered secret “dirt” on Donald Trump’s opponent in the 2016 presidential
election, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Mr. Trump, Jr. was told Russia was offering him this information as part of its support for his father’s candidacy.  Instead of reacting with concern or alarm that a foreign power was trying to meddle in
a domestic U.S. election in violation of federal law, Mr. Trump, Jr. said he would “love” to get his hands on this information; he and his colleagues – then-Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner – later met with the
Russian representatives to do so.

are run in this country. We need to break the stranglehold that secret corporate spending has placed over our elections.
