After Putin blames Jews for election meddling, lawmakers demand he extradite indicted Russians

Top Democrats in Congress called on the Trump administration Monday to do everything in its power to have the 13 Russian nationals indicted last month on charges of election meddling extradited to the United States to face trial.

The letter to President Donald Trump comes after Russian President Vladimir Putin told NBC News in an interview with Megyn Kelly that Jews and other minorities may have been responsible for the cyberattacks during the 2016 election.

“We write to urge your administration to devote all resources available to ensure that the Russian nationals indicted for allegedly interfering with the 2016 elections are brought to justice and stand trial in the United States,” Democrats said in the letter, which was signed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, as well as by Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., ranking members on the House and Senate Judiciary Committees.
