Pelosi Publicly Calls on Paul Ryan to Stop Any GOP Efforts to Hinder Russia Probe

Nancy Pelosi sent a letter to Paul Ryan asking that the Speaker make sure that Republicans do not get in the way of the ongoing House Intel Committee’s Russia probe.

In the letter today, Pelosi writes, “Democrats are deeply concerned by the Majority’s efforts to curtail the House Intelligence Committee investigation and its overall failure to address Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election.”

Top Senate Intel Democrat Mark Warner expressed similar alarm in a big Senate floor speech this week, knocking Republicans slamming the FBI and suggesting Robert Mueller needs to be fired.

Pelosi continued:

Nothing less than America’s democracy and national security are at stake, and therefore we must fully investigate Russia’s assault on our election systems to prevent future foreign attacks. We expect that you will take urgent action to ensure this investigation can continue, and justice can be pursued, unhindered.

A spokesperson for Speaker Ryan said in response, “Leader Pelosi would like to see this investigation go on forever.”
