Leaders should aggressively pursue Russian meddling

The latest attacks on the FBI and the Department of Justice serves no American interests, no party, no president’s — only Putin’s.


Our nation’s elected officials including the president, must stop looking at this investigation through the warped lens of politics and manufacturing partisan sideshows. If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him.

These are words of U.S. Sen. John McCain who has had the guts to voice his concern over the damaging partisan vitriol that is coming out of Congress and the Whitehouse concerning the Russian meddling in our democracy.

I urge you to call or write our congressional delegation and ask them to show the same leadership McCain has by publicly rebuking those in Washington who continue to stonewall the investigation into the Russian meddling. We need leadership in Washington that will aggressively pursue how and who is responsible for undermining our democracy and put a stop to it. The current leadership in the Whitehouse and a large part of the Republican Congress are more interested in party politics, which has become akin to a circular firing squad. We will all lose if our elected official don’t get their act together and work for the better good of the citizens of our country.

Clay Frick,
