McCaul Statement on DOJ Indictments Against Russian Nationals and Entities

Washington, D.C. – House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) issued the following statement regarding the indictment of thirteen Russians and three Russian entities who were indicted for allegedly interfering in the 2016 U.S. election:

Chairman McCaul: “The alleged actions laid out in the indictments are a direct assault against our people and our democracy. As I have said many times before, Russia is not our friend and this is another concrete example of their destabilizing actions. We cannot allow anyone to undermine the confidence in our electoral process. We must extradite these Russians so that they can be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
