Cramer’s silence on Russia is deafening

Will Congressman Cramer stand up for North Dakota and call for nonpartisan investigation on Russia?

March 31, 2017


(BISMARCK, N.D.) – We learned over the past week that Devin Nunes, Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, raced to share with President Trump and the media – prior to sharing it members of his own committee – intelligence regarding the House’s investigation into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia. We learned further that his sources for this information came from within the White House. He has canceled future Committee hearings, effectively halting the investigation. Even Republican Senator John McCain has questioned the credibility of the panel.

In light of these revelations, Robert Haider, Executive Director of the Democratic-NPL Party, released the following statement:

“Our country’s intelligence agencies confirmed Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. election, and now the head of the House Intelligence Committee has shown his conflict of interest and halted the committee’s investigation into the matter. This is an issue of national security.

“Where is Kevin Cramer? His refusal to acknowledge the importance of an unbiased investigation into the connection between the Trump campaign and Russia is telling. From everything that’s come to light over the past week, it’s clear that we need unbiased investigations into these ties. Cramer needs to do what’s best for the country and join the call for Nunes to recuse himself and for nonpartisan investigations, rather than staying silent.”
