TONIGHT: Live chat on Russia investigation
By now you've likely heard that the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence has requested documents from our campaign relevant to their investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.
At least that's what they told us. But when they talked to the press, the charge had escalated to investigating our campaign for "collusion with the Russians".
We are cooperating with the committee, but we weren't born yesterday. While interference in our elections is something we take seriously, sensationalism, politicizing and ulterior motives tarnish the process and pose a serious threat. The investigation must not be allowed to become a tool for intimidating and silencing political opposition to the two corporate political parties.
This investigation - which Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald likened to the dark days of McCarthyism - is happening in the context of a bipartisan campaign to control information, criminalize dissent, and silence principled opposition to the political establishment.
Please join me tonight at 8:30pm Eastern time for a live conversation on our Facebook page about the Russia investigation and how we can defend our rights from the bipartisan crackdown on democracy.
Thank you to everyone who has offered support in this galvanizing moment.
Stay strong, keep fighting for people, planet and peace over profit, and I hope to talk to you tonight!
