Declassify all evidence of Russian interference and host intelligence briefing for electors before Electoral College votes on December 19

To be delivered to President Donald Trump

Petition Statement

The Electoral College has the right and the duty to see the evidence that the CIA has related to Russia's impact on our elections. Declassify the evidence and brief the electors before they vote on December 19.
There are currently 253,092 signatures. NEW goal - We need 275,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Just one week before the Electoral College meets to formally elect our next president, a bipartisan group of electors sent a letter to the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper demanding an intelligence briefing related to Russia's impact on our elections in advance of their vote.

CIA analysts have apparently concluded that Russia sought to influence the presidential election in favor of Donald Trump, and that Russia got the result it wanted. But the level of that involvement and what it means for our democracy is unclear because the CIA has not made the evidence public, briefed key members of Congress, nor fully updated members of the Electoral College who are being asked to determine the next president this coming Monday.

The electors and the American public deserve to hear the facts. We cannot presume to know what impact Russia had, whether this should negate the election night results, or what it might mean for future elections until we review the evidence. And while it is unlikely to change the election outcome, Americans deserve the confidence in our electoral system that comes with clearly knowing the threats we faced and whether they had impact.

The president has a responsibility, among his final duties in office, to give Americans the truth, and help us establish confidence in our democracy again. He can and must order the CIA to brief the electors and members of Congress in full before December 19, and declassify and disseminate the evidence for the public to consider as quickly as possible.
