Rep. Katherine Clark, D-Mass., on Thursday asked Republicans, “where is the outrage” over foreign interference in U.S. elections, and criticized the president’s recent comments.
“We need for our partners, our colleagues across the aisle to join us,” Clark said in an interview on CNN’s “New Day.” “Where is the outrage? We have passed a bill in H.R. 1 that will protect just our voting and our elections from just this kind of foreign interference. It is sitting at the Senate door. We need the Senate to do their jobs. We need Republicans to join us and say ‘this is unacceptable, and we must stand for the Constitution.'”
She also addressed President Donald Trump’s recent comment in an interview with ABC News that he would accept compromising information about his political opponents from foreign powers.
“It really underlines the importance of us continuing to be aggressive and getting these facts out to the American people,” the congresswoman said. “We’re having the hearings and we need to pursue this. We need to take our ability, our responsibility under the constitution for oversight and investigation so deadly seriously, and we need to make the case about this president and this administration.”
