Official Title

A bill to establish an independent commission to examine and report on the facts regarding the extent of Russian official and unofficial cyber operations and other attempts to interfere in the 2016 United States national election, and for other purposes.

Summary

This bill establishes the Commission to End Russian Interference in United States Elections as an independent commission to examine Russian cyber operations and attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. national election. The commission must examine attempts by the Russian government, governments or other entities associated with or collaborating with Russia, or persons or entities in Russia to: access, alter, or tamper with voting systems, voter roll information, the Donald J. Trump and the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign organizations, and the Democratic and the Republican national committees, congressional campaign committees, and governors associations; promote propaganda relevant to any election for public office held in the United States during 2016; and use electronic means to influence, interfere with, or sow distrust in such elections. The commission must: (1) report on evidence developed by federal agencies; (2) build upon investigations of executive branch, congressional, or independent entities; and (3) make a full accounting of interference attempts and the U.S. response, and government preparedness, to defend against such interference. The commission may receive classified information and issue subpoenas. The commission must report to the President and Congress with conclusions and recommendations on preventing a reoccurrence of such interference.

    Our top intelligence agencies - FBI, CIA, NSA - and brightest operatives provided proof of continued Russian tampering with our democratic process. It's our duty to protect our Democracy. OUR DEMOCRACY. Left or right, we must learn the extent and methods of tampering and prevent future attempts. Support your representatives to pass this bill.

    I fully support and independent investigation into Russia's influence in our election. It seems that we have moved from denying Russia was affecting our election right into minimizing the possible effects, but there has been no clear report on exactly how big of a part they played. I don't believe we can continue without addressing this very large issue.

    Absolutely! Trump is all smoke and mirrors about these issues. He and his staff have created a foundation of fear and mistrust. These investigations can clear this up and we as a nation can be confident in our actions regarding his presidency.

    This is a requirement to demonstrate for one and all to show if President Donald Trump is the “legitimate” president of the United States. Until then, he will not be considered as such.
