Randy Bryce Issues Statement on the Release of the Nunes Memo
RACINE, WI – Democratic congressional candidate Randy Bryce issued the following statement on the release of the Nunes memo today. Bryce is running to replace Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin’s First District.
“This is simple: President Trump said he wanted this memo released because it will weaken the investigation into Russia’s attack on our democracy. Speaker Ryan could have stopped the President, but he didn’t, he helped him.
This is why our Congress needs more veterans and fewer millionaires. The nation I enlisted for worked to spread democracy and fiercely protected its own. We understood the tremendous sacrifice so many had made to protect our free and fair elections, and we didn’t do anything to risk them. We certainly didn’t risk them to satisfy the President’s ego or to win a political game.
While damage has been done, we can still work to protect our elections from corruption in the future. I urge Speaker Ryan to immediately call for a vote on legislation introduced several months ago that would protect Special Counsel Mueller’s position and enable him to complete his investigation.”
