The American intelligence community has found that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. This action by a foreign nation was unprecedented, violated our Constitution and undermined the founding pillars of American democracy. We cannot allow a foreign nation to ever influence our elections because it harms our liberty, freedom and independence. This is bigger than just one election, and for the sake of our democracy, we must remain vigilant.

One way to stay vigilant is to make sure we have all the facts. That’s why I’m cosponsoring the Protecting Our Democracy Act to establish an independent, bipartisan commission to investigate foreign interference in the 2016 election. The bill would create a 12-member commission empowered to interview witnesses, obtain documents, issue subpoenas, and receive public testimony to examine attempts by the Russian government or others to use electronic means to influence, interfere with, or undermine trust in last year’s U.S. elections. The commission would examine any similar efforts by any other foreign governments or entities and would issue a final report with recommendations to Congress and the President within 18 months of enactment.

Thank you to the 1,831 Coloradans who participated in this survey. I will continue to monitor the new administration and keep you informed on new issues.  

It has been a great privilege to work with President Obama over the last eight years. He led our country out of the Great Recession, signed historic health care reform into law, fought for stronger financial regulations, improved renewable energy standards, saved the American auto industry and much, much more. He brought class and style to the White House, and he will certainly be missed.

On Tuesday, the President gave his farewell address. He discussed the need strengthen our democracy and continue to move our country forward:

“Democracy does not require uniformity. Our founders argued. They quarreled. Eventually they compromised. They expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity — the idea that for all our outward differences, we're all in this together; that we rise or fall as one.”

As your representative in the 115th Congress, I will continue to fight for more opportunity for all Americans. I will work with any Republican, Democrat or Independent to ensure progress is not undone and instead we are moving our country forward. But above all, I will remember, no matter our differences, we are all Americans first. This is our country and we are all in this together.
