Massachusetts Democratic Party Responds to Mueller Indictment
BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement today in response to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three Russian groups for meddling in our 2016 presidential election:
“Today’s announcement verifies what has long been clear: a foreign nation meddled in our elections, the most sacred rite of our democracy.
“What are the President and his advisors hiding? How deep do their ties to Russia and their hijacking of our elections go?
“It is time all Republican leaders honor their oath of office and protect our democracy instead of blindly following and protecting the President, who has actively tried to kill this investigation from day one.
“While this is a critical first step, until we have a complete, thorough investigation, the security of our democracy and the integrity of our elections continue to hang in the balance.”
