The First House Republican Stands Up

The Charlotte Observer reported today,

U.S. Rep. Walter Jones, from eastern North Carolina’s 3rdimg_ap_697888238651_2_1_2q62bnao_l163818131 Congressional District, became the first Republican member of the House of Representatives this week to support a proposed independent citizen commission to look into alleged Russian government interference in the 2016 election and any ties to President Donald Trump’s campaign.

Democrats leading the call for the special commission announced Friday that Jones is a co-sponsor to the bill titled “Protecting Our Democracy Act.” If approved, the legislation would create a bipartisan-appointed commission similar to the one Congress authorized after the September 2001 terror attacks.
