Yesterday, I announced on social media that I will meet with the House Russia inquiry investigating foreign meddling in our elections in the upcoming weeks. I look forward to a full cooperation with the committee as I continue to provide information about the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in our election.
Today, I indicated that I would not commit to call into congressional investigations. However, I will have conversations and will not hide from the public – I am eager to testify in full this fall about what I can tell the American people about our intelligence community’s assessment of interference, the Russian government’s attempts to interfere, and the Russian government’s continued efforts to undermine democracy and divide our country.
I will not keep Congress in the dark. I am eager to answer the questions that are already being asked of my colleagues. And I will be prepared to testify under oath – and seek a prompt return of my materials, including intelligence documents that were classified or removed under Official Secrets Act.
Americans should be well-aware of the efforts to interfere in our elections. The intelligence community’s assessment and our continued work on this investigation are important that members of Congress are briefed in great detail and receive additional briefings on it. This investigation is far from being completed. I stand with this investigation’s ongoing bipartisan and bicameral investigators to ensure this dangerous effort to undermine our democracy is fully exposed and deterred.
