Rep. Pocan Urges President Trump to Fully Declassify Report on Russian Interference in 2016 Election
"I feel it is imperative the American people get all the facts…"
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (D-WI) today sent a letter to President Trump urging the full declassification of the Intelligence Community report “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections.”
In a speech today on the House Floor Rep. Pocan said, “Given President Trump’s unwillingness to accept the reality of the Russian interference in our election, given the closeness of several leading members of the President’s cabinet to Russia, and given the recent resignation of our National Security Advisor over his dealings with Russia – I feel it is imperative the American people get all the facts… It’s really that simple. Let the people decide. Declassify the report.”

President Donald Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20515
Dear President Trump:
I am writing to request that the fully classified version of the report “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections” be declassified for the benefit of all Americans. I strongly believe Americans have a right to know information which has yet to be declassified regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Member of Congress
