“House Democrats consider bills to ‘safeguard democracy’ in response to Mueller report”

NBC News:

One likely piece of legislation would be framed as “Duty to Report,” requiring presidential campaign aides and entities to report foreign contacts and influence to law enforcement after Mueller identified numerous such interactions between Trump campaign aides and Russians in the course of the 2016 election that were never reported to the FBI, according to two aides familiar with the planning.

Also at the top of the menu is a package of legislation to address election security and obstruction of justice by a sitting president, potentially specifically prohibiting a president from interfering in law enforcement activity.

Other options under consideration are bills on pardon reform and facilitating intelligence sharing across agencies and state lines.
