Press Release

Washington, DC – Today Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) issued the following statement in response to the recent summit in Helsinki, Finland: 

“As a former Navy pilot whose responsibility was to hunt and, if necessary, destroy Russian submarines, I take any and every potential threat from Russia very seriously.  There is no question based on the evidence from our intelligence agencies that Russians worked to undermine our elections and destabilize our country. This is something Russian operatives have always sought to do. I urge the president to treat the Russian threat seriously and aggressively work to counter these actions in the future.”
