Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Democrats search for Russians -- any Russians -- for collusion story
In a letter from the Democratic senior minority counsel for the [SENATE SELECT] committee [ON INTELLIGENCE], April Doss, various individuals and groups were told to reveal not just any Russian citizens with which they have associated but anyone that an organization "knows or has reason to believe [is] of Russian nationality or descent." Any degree of Russian blood.
So these individuals and groups are expected to reveal the names and association with anyone with any Russian blood who acted "in any way" with any aspect of the "political election process in the U.S."
The forced disclosure of such names has long been viewed as a threat to core constitutional rights. In the 1958 case National Association for the Advancement of Colored People v. Alabama, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against Alabama in seeking the list of members from the NAACP. The court ruled that the disclosure of such names "may induce members to withdraw from the Association and dissuade others from joining it because of fear of exposure of their beliefs shown through their associations and of the consequences of this exposure."

If Europeans can't do better than this, I don't know what.

I was hoping you'd flag plays in the SENATE SUBCOMMITTEE on Internal Security
