The NAACP issued the following statement in regards to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 13 Russian nationals for alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential election:

“It is clear that the Black vote has been targeted by both internal and external forces and the NAACP is committed to challenging any attempt to reduce or diminish the political power of the African-American community, communities of color and the nation as a whole.”

“The NAACP calls for a complete investigation into the alleged election tampering by Russian nationals in the 2016 presidential election. As important, we also call for a thorough assessment of our election system to determine any potential weaknesses that could allow for the suppression or interference of votes during the upcoming midterm elections.

“The midterm elections have the potential to shift the entire balance of power in Congress and it remains critical that the integrity of the voting process cannot be questioned. This also means long term that we immediately look at addressing the looming issues of partisan redistricting, laws that promote voter suppression, and the complete restoration of Section-5 of the Voting Rights Act.
