Rep. Khanna: Bipartisan Work Needed to Protect Elections

By    |   Tuesday, 26 March 2019 02:08 PM EDT

There can be bipartisan agreement on keeping Russia or another country from interfering in U.S. elections, but "they always go back to [President Donald] Trump didn't have any involvement," Rep. Ro Khanna said Tuesday.

"We know that the Russians wanted Trump to win and we know that they hacked our emails and they manipulated social media," the California Democrat told MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"I mean tomorrow, imagine if some foreign power wanted to elect someone on the far left. This is really not a partisan issue. And there are some very, very basic things we can do. Let ads be disclosed on the internet. Let's have coordination between our intelligence agencies and technology."

Khanna appeared on the program with former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul and former Facebook Chief Security Officer Alex Stamos, after the trio wrote an opinion piece for The Washington Post warning about election interference.

McFaul commented that Americans should thank special counsel Robert Mueller and his team for their investigation, which while clearing Trump did point to Russian interference in the 2016 race.

Stamos added that Russia "played us" in 2016, and now their playbook is out there and available to other U.S. adversaries.

"Just this morning, my colleagues at Facebook announced they took down another 500 fake accounts and pages that look like they belong to the government of Iran, so we can't just worry about the Russians," he said.
