Swalwell: Democracy Is ‘Under Assault by President Trump and Fixers in Congress’

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Representative Eric Swalwell (D-CA) stated that US democracy has been under attack from the Russians ever since they attacked the 2016 election, and is now also “under assault by President Trump and his fixers in Congress, something that we’ve never seen before.”

Swalwell said, “[W]hat we are seeing is that democracy is under assault from two fronts now. It’s always been under assault from the Russians since they attacked us. But now it’s under assault by President Trump and his fixers in Congress, something that we’ve never seen before.”
