Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after President Trump signed S.J. Res. 34, a Republican measure to eliminate Americans’ internet privacy: 

“Someone with as many hidden secrets as President Trump should have greater respect for the privacy of the American people.   

“President Trump’s signature has unleashed internet service providers to sell your most intimate personal information – without your knowledge or your consent.  This Republican measure is a breathtaking violation of Americans’ privacy in one of the most personal parts of their lives.  

“Republicans will do anything to keep President Trump’s tax returns hidden.  But they’ve decided to sell Americans’ most personal and sensitive information to anyone with the money to buy it.  Democrats will be fighting back to restore Americans’ right to basic privacy on the internet.”
