California Rep. Eric Swalwell has set up web pages to show connections between President Donald Trump’s team and Russian government officials and business interests.
The pages, titled “Protect Our Democracy,” highlights how Russia has “worked against American values,” how Russian operatives interfered in the 2016 election, and how Trump’s team is tied to Russia, CBS San Francisco reported.
“In our 2016 elections, Russia attacked our democracy,” Swalwell says. “It was silent and nearly invisible, but nevertheless it struck the core of our democracy — our free and fair elections.”
In January, the California Democrat introduced legislation with Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah E. Cummings to set up an independent bipartisan commission to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“It’s clear that he and his team have already been affected by their contact with Russia and have instated more pro-Russia policies than America has seen in decades,” one passage on the site reads.
