Stephanie Murphy, Blue Dogs demand Russia anti-meddling legislation

Winter Park’s U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy and the Blue Dog Coalition Democrats she leads have sent a letter to Congressional leaders demanding action on Russia anti-meddling legislation.

“Every single Member of Congress has sworn to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. It is our sacred duty to uphold that oath to our country,” declared the letter signed by Murphy and other leaders of the Blue Dog Coalition and the Blue Dog Task Force on National Security, the moderate Democratic groups focusing on national security.

The letter went to U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.

“As the leaders of a Coalition of national security-focused Democrats, we are calling on Congress to take further action to secure our elections, punish Russia for its attempts to meddle in the 2016 and 2018 elections, and deter our adversaries from meddling in future U.S. elections,” the letter states. “This summer, the House has passed the SAFE Act, the Senate Intelligence Committee has issued a bipartisan report outlining Russia’s efforts against U.S. election infrastructure and proposing solutions that have earned bipartisan support, and leaders in the intelligence community have continued to sound the alarm that Russia and other adversaries will meddle in the 2020 election. The threat to our national security could not be more clear.”
