United States Congress

The American people deserve to know what Congress is learning from its investigations of Russia’s coordinated and sophisticated effort to swing the 2016 presidential election.

We deserve better than misleading, selective leaks, meant to spur right-wing conspiracy theories. Congress must immediately release the full transcripts of Fusion GPS’s testimony.

Signed,

It's been over a year since the 2016 election, and the American public still knows shamefully little about Russia's attack on the integrity of our elections.

To make matters worse, Donald Trump's allies are deliberately misleading the public and muddying the waters with conspiracy theories. Chief among these efforts is a smear campaign against Fusion GPS, a firm hired to investigate Trump's Russian business connections.

By selectively leaking misleading information from Congressional transcripts to right-wing news outlets, Trump's defenders are attempting to derail the legitimate inquiry into Russia's meddling. We must put a stop to this.

Congress must immediately release the full transcripts of its more than 20 hours of closed-door interviews with Fusion GPS so the American people can judge for themselves what happened.

Senator Chuck Grassley, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and other congressional leaders promised a transparent process but they have left the American people in the dark about this direct attack on our democracy by a hostile foreign power. 

But the vacuum created by Congress' secrecy has been filled by an extensive campaign by overzealous defenders of President Trump to attempt to discredit the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and to sew confusion with the public. It is time for 

Members of Congress to put their country before their party and start giving the Americans they represent some answers. Add your name today to demand that Congress release the full Fusion GPS transcripts.
