DemDaily: Hollywood’s Committee to Investigate Russia

September 22, 2017

Not surprisingly, Hollywood is getting into the act.

While the Trump administration has supplied entertainers and late night hosts with unlimited material, some of Hollywood's heavyweights have gone further, this week launching the Committee to Investigate Russia.

It is not a movie, but "a nonprofit, non-partisan resource to help Americans recognize and understand the gravity of Russia's continuing attacks on our democracy."

The group, which debuted with an introductory video message from actor Morgan Freeman, was founded by director and activist Rob Reiner and The Atlantic's senior editor David Frum, a former George W. Bush adviser.

Other Advisory Board members include conservative commentator Charlie Sykes,
former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, American Enterprise Institute's Norman Ornstein and military Historian and foreign policy analyst Max Boot.

The Goal: A one-stop shop that provides the history, facts and ongoing developments in Russia's role in the 2016 election, the Trump administration and related investigations.


The site provides links to "Key Players," and pages profiling the Trump Team, Trump Associates, Russians and Ukranians, and Investigators and Officials.

Other site categories include Investigations, Timelines, History and Other (News) -- each with equally detailed overviews of their subjects and players.


The Commmittee's motivation for launching the information campaign is attributed to the "Russian Active Measures campaign's...effort to subvert the American democratic process" and "the multiple investigations" President Trump and his staff are facing only months into his first term.

Information and updates on each of the three Congressional investigations, the Special Counsel Investigation and "related" investigations are available on the site.

The Committee will also publish a daily newsletter and breaking news updates.
