FINAL CALL FOR ORIGINAL COSPONSORS: Stop Cyber Cooperation with Russia

During their meeting at the G-20 Summit, President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the establishment of a bilateral “unit” focused on cybersecurity issues, “so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded.” This
proposal has drawn substantial criticism from both parties, for good reason: Putin continues to deny any role in interfering in the 2016 Presidential election, despite all evidence to the contrary. Further, Russia is escalating its cyberattacks on our critical
infrastructure – including, as recently reported, on our nuclear facilities. Entering into a cooperative cybersecurity agreement with Russia at this time could harm our national security while sending the wrong message to our allies, partners, and adversaries.

FINAL CALL FOR SIGNATU Urge the Army to Hold Michael Flynn Accountable

On April 25, the Department of Defense informed Congress that retired Lieutenant General and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn failed to seek approval prior to accepting payments from foreign agents, as required by law. General Flynn’s responsibilities

accountable in accordance with Army Regulations, which would include a forfeiture of retirement pay in an amount equal to the compensation received from the foreign governments.
