Democrat Says Election Meddling As Bad As 9/11


Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) is alleging that the Russians meddling in the U.S. elections is equivalent to a “9/11 national emergency.”

While speaking about the one-on-one meeting between Trump and Putin, Blumenthal stated, “TASS, the Russian News Agency yesterday issued a statement saying the Russian foreign ministry is ready for the practical  implications in the agreements of the sphere of international security reached by the Russian and United States president. So we have a constitutional responsibility to demand transparency about the private meeting.”

Adding, “Republicans have a historic responsibility as do all of us because the red light is flashing, as the director of National Security Dan Coats put it, much as it was before 9/11. We are in a 9/11 national emergency, because our country is under attack. Literally that attack is ongoing and pervasive, verified by objective and verifiable evidence. Those words are, again from the director of national security. This 9/11 moment demands that we do come together, issue a subpoena not only for the translator and the notes but also for the national security team that debriefed the president about these supposed agreements in the sphere of international security.”
