As everyone applauds Republican Rep. Will Hurd tonight...

Remember, he's on the House Intelligence Committee. He's voted with Nunes and the GOP on each and every measure, including on their sham "Russia Investigation" findings and today's vote against subpoenaing the translator.
#FTR: We should applaud Republicans who break from Trump and their party.

At the same time, we should be aware of their actions, and how, even as recently as today, they contradict their words.

We must encourage them to take those words and turn them into concrete action.
We should welcome Rep. Hurd's words and encourage matching action.

I've feared we wouldn't see Republicans like Sen. Edward Brooke — the first (of many that followed) to break w/ the GOP and call for Nixon's resignation.

I hope those fears are unfounded.
#Correction: Looks like Hurd skipped the vote to subpoena the translator. Instead of walking the walk, his op-ed is just talk at this point. He hid, instead of stepping up and voting to bring the interpreter to Congress to find out #WhatHappenedInHelsinki?
Every Republican in the House Intelligence Committee voted along party lines, against subpoenaing the translator.

Will Hurd has voted with Nunes, down party lines, in every vote. Including releasing the #NunesMemo, refuting the intelligence community in Nunes' sham report, etc.
Hurd did however show up and vote no with his party (like always) against election security funding. He warns about Putin, yet votes to leave the election infrastructure vulnerable in November.

He must use his power to act on his words.
