Russia interfering in our election isn’t a partisan issue, it’s an American one. We were attacked as Americans. This should anger us all.

Joe Walsh, the former GOP Congressman from Illinois who now earns headlines for his more bizarre Twitter tirades, appeared on MSNBC Monday morning to continue his open criticisms against reports that Russia interfered with our presidential election.

Although back in October it was first reported that 17 different intelligence agencies were indicating Kremlin interference, the Washington Postreleased a bombshell report Friday that additionally showed that a CIA assessment revealed Russia was actively working to elect Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. One senior U.S. official said, “It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected. That’s the consensus view.”

As the information came to light on Friday, the always-outspoken Walsh took to Twitter for a long rant, writing in part, “It will be utterly disgraceful if Republicans & Conservatives keep their mouths shut in the wake of what the CIA is saying about Russia.”
