Blumenthal Statement on Republican House Intelligence Committee's Russia Report

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the following statement today after the Republican majority on the House Intelligence Committee released a partisan report on Russian meddling in the 2016 election:

“This report is a whitewash – without any plausible pretense of truth telling. It reeks of raw partisan politics. It offers the President a fig leaf fantasy of protection against the reality of wrongdoing. It conflates, contorts and conceals the facts at every critical turn. It would be a joke, if it were not such a deadly threat to our democracy.”
