MADISON — After yesterday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing, in which FBI Director Comey clearly stated that the FBI is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere with the 2016 presidential election, and has been doing so since July of 2016, Martha Laning, Chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party, released the following statement:

“The confirmation by FBI Director Comey that the FBI is looking into whether the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election is proof positive that we need an investigation unimpeded by politics. After yesterday’s revelations, it is incumbent upon Scott Walker, Robin Vos, Scott Fitzgerald and all Republicans considering running for the Senate to join the bipartisan chorus of lawmakers who are calling for an investigation into this matter free of political interference and put Wisconsinites safety and security over their own self-interested politics.”
