I've got a new piece at Shareblue about Rep. Elijah Cummings continuing to kick ass, which includes a video (with complete transcipt) of the Congressman during an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo this morning. He said, in part:
[T]here has been hacking by the Russians. We're clear on that. It goes up to the highest levels of the Russian government. We're clear on that.

And this is like, as the former CIA director said, this is like a 9/11 for us. And we should be addressing it in a very serious and, it must be, an independent way. And that's why Congressman Swalwell and I have proposed legislation and put forth legislation to make this more of a 9/11-type commission to actually look at what is going on.

Chris, I've said it for weeks — that this is a struggle for the soul of our democracy. ...We have no time—we have no time for partisanship here.
Head on over to read the whole thing. And if you'd like to send your support to Rep. Cummings, his Twitter handle is: @RepCummings.
