Truth About Russian Activity 'Cannot Be Withheld From A Self-Governing People'

Barton Gellman sounds the alarm on why it's so critical that we receive disclosure about Russia's "weaponized intelligence."
Truth About Russian Activity 'Cannot Be Withheld From A Self-Governing People'

Barton Gellman is the reporter who covered 9-11 for the Washington Post and went on to cover the unbridled power Dick Cheney claimed for himself as Vice President. In a series of tweets earlier today, he laid out a scenario for why the FBI and CIA might be at loggerheads with each other, and why it is critical that the public is informed as soon as humanly possible about how the Russians have interfered in the election.

We have no democracy if we have no concrete details. Mitch McConnell and crew are highly unlikely to deliver it, particularly when they're the beneficiaries of a successful hit by Russians.

Until we hear otherwise by witnesses testifying under oath, we should all assume Republicans intentionally aided and abetted foreign aggression against American democracy.
