WASHINGTON – Congressman Vicente Gonzalez (TX-15) issued the following statement in response to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian military officers for cyber-hacking activity during the 2016 elections:

“Today’s indictment by the Special Counsel of 12 Russian military officers further demonstrates the Russian government’s intent to meddle in the 2016 elections,” Congressman Gonzalez said. “Congress and the administration must let this independent investigation continue, hold the Russian government accountable, and pass legislation that secures American elections from foreign interference.”
