U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement after the Department of Justice charged Elena Khusyaynova, of Russia, with conspiracy to interfere with the 2018 U.S. elections.

“America needs to see what Vladimir Putin is doing. Election after election, Putin and his cronies are working to undermine our public trust. This indictment shows that he won’t stop working to divide Americans — we have to keep exposing his effort for what it is: political warfare. It’s good to see DOJ push back on Putin’s shadow war by publicly indicting his shadow warriors and bring his war to light.”
