Washington, DC – Congressman Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ) released a statement following reports that President Donald Trump’s discussed a partnership with Russia to create a cyber security unit to prevent future election hacking:

“We must get serious about protecting our country against cyber attacks that could impact our elections and undermine our democracy,” said Rep.
