Demand Reasonable Limits on "Russiagate" Investigations

The House Intelligence Committee has invited and, when he declined, sent a subpoena to a progressive journalist. The committee wants New York radio host Randy Credico to appear and be questioned on matters related to the committee's investigation into "Russian active measures directed at the 2016 U.S. election." And the committee is telling Credico to produce any records of anything related to the topic.

Please click below to sign this petition to Congress:

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution protects all journalists, including ones the government doesn’t like. Credico says that the only materials he has are his journalistic notes.

Any investigation should have limits.

Congress appears to be targeting people for political purposes, including to needlessly worsen U.S.-Russia hostility. Journalism and legal interactions with people who are Russian simply are not crimes.

We believe that the “Russiagate” investigations should be conducted within reasonable limits and not become a tool for political theater and harassment of journalists or dissidents.
