'America cannot tolerate Moscow's aggressive behavior'

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, former CIA undercover officer U.S. Representative Will Hurd (TX-23) joined his colleagues to condemn the Administration’s decision to terminate sanctions on three Russian companies. After leaving the House floor, Hurd released the following statement:

“Russia will stop at nothing to erode trust in our democratic institutions and threaten our allies,” said Hurd, who called for U.S. action against Russian covert operations long before the 2016 election. “We must continue to show Vladimir Putin and other bad actors across the globe that there are consequences for their actions. America cannot tolerate Moscow’s aggressive behavior.”
