N.E. Electoral College members asking for security briefing

The list of Electoral College members calling for a security briefing before they vote next week is growing — and includes numerous electors from New England.

The effort was organized by California elector Christine Pelosi, daughter of Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader. In a letter to National Intelligence Director James Clapper, she and like-minded electors wrote: “The Electors require to know from the intelligence community whether there are ongoing investigations into ties between Donald Trump, his campaign or associates, and Russian government interference in the election, the scope of those investigations, how far those investigations may have reached, and who was involved in those investigations. We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States.”


Among the signers: all four of New Hampshire’s electors, Dudley Dudley, Bev Hollingworth, Terie Norelli, and Carol Shea-Porter; Rhode Island elector Clay Pell; Massachusetts electors Nazda Alam, Dori Dean, Jason Palitsch, Parwez Wahid, and Paul G. Yorkis; Vermont elector Martha Allen; and Maine elector Diane Denk.
