Democratic, GOP Senators Unite to Sound Alarm Over Russia

2

Four Democratic and Republican senators issued a statement this warning that concerns over Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election “cannot become a partisan issue.”

“Democrats and Republicans must work together, and across the jurisdictional lines of the Congress, to examine these recent incidents thoroughly and devise comprehensive solutions to deter and defend against further cyber-attacks,” said incoming Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Ranking Member Jack Reed (D-R.I.), and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

The joint statement went on to warn that news of Moscow’s interference in the election “should alarm every American.” “The stakes are too high for our country” for it to become a partisan issue, the statement said. “We are committed to working in this bipartisan manner, and we will seek to unify our colleagues around the goal of investigating and stopping the grave threats that cyberattacks conducted by foreign governments pose to our national security.” The statement comes after The Washington Post reported on Friday that the CIA concluded Russia had interfered in the election to help Donald Trump win, a fact which triggered calls for a congressional investigation. While most politicians reacted with shock and concern to the report, Trump dismissed the news as “ridiculous.” Read more at POLITICO.

  1. It is sad that the Democrats and the Republicans who hate Trump are having a large temper tantrum like a child, what are they going to do now, hold their breath until they turn blue. This sounds like a child that didn’t get their way and now they are having a temper tantrum and blame anything but themselves for the loss. Instead the people who hated Trump should have let the system work instead of interfering with it maybe the out come would have been different. This is what we have and we have to work with it, so stop slobbering and work with the system and maybe things this time will work.
