Congress Alert

House Members Offered ‘Russian Hacking’ Briefing — Two Weeks After Obama Expelled Russian Diplomats


undefined

US House Member Justin Amash (R-MI) announced Wednesday on Twitter that the Obama administration has agreed to the request Amash and fellow House Member Walter Jones (R-NC) made to President Barack Obama on December 19 that a classified briefing be provided for all Congress members concerning evidence being used to support claims that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 US presidential election to help Donald Trump’s campaign.

Amash says in his Twitter post that the briefing will occur on Friday.

While Amash and Jones requested that the briefing take place immediately, it is scheduled to occur almost a month after their request. Indeed, the briefing will occur too late to assist Congress members in taking part in deciding whether or not actions should be taken against Russia in response to purported election interference, given that Obama imposed responsive US actions against Russia, including the expelling of 35 Russia diplomats, two weeks ago.

Jones is a Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board member.
