Cosponsor a Bipartisan Bill to Establish an Independent Commission to Investigate Russia’s Interference

I wanted to alert you to an op-ed I authored, published today in USA Today, in which I address what should happen now in light of the published e-mails showing a meeting Donald Trump, Jr., attended at which he was told damaging information would
be revealed about Hillary Clinton by a Russian government lawyer.  This includes the need for passage of H.R. 356, the

presidential election. Despite President Trump’s claims, multiple studies at the state and federal level confirm there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud during the 2016 elections. Studies also do not support his outrageous claim that he lost the popular
vote for president due to improper votes being cast.
