Two GOP senators join call for Bi-partisan Investigation.

Recently, there has been a lot of controversy over election results in various battleground states around the nation. This prompted a recount of votes, after many citizens and politicians called for a review. To further add to the election controversy, the CIA has released a report on suspected Russian activities affecting the recent presidential election. In this article, two key GOP senators, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, join Democrats Charles Schumer and Jack Reed in call for bi-partisan investigation on Russian influence of the previous election.

The beginning of the article states that this call for action came after The Washington Post reported the CIA’s “private conclusion” that Russian interference was intended to benefit Trump in the election. The Senators released a statement saying “Recent reports of Russian interference in our election should alarm every American… 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.” The article goes on to state that McCain and Graham have had difficult relationships with Trump, so this is does necessarily signal wide ranging support of the bi-partisan investigation. In the latter part of the article, opinions from Republican John Cornyn and House Speaker Paul Ryan were given. This is obviously an important matter that should be addressed, and it will be interesting to see if this will gain further support among both parties.

  1. I like your blog post and find this report from the CIA to be disturbing. I wonder how Republican Party elites, particularly those who have been given a cabinet position, will react to this information. However, I do think that it is too early to jump to conclusions on this investigation as sometimes (as in the Clinton investigation) they reveal no incriminating information.

    1. That is also my opinion. If there is proof that there was interference in an American election by Russian hacking, it should be addressed. This is an issue that effects all Americans because it is a matter of fair democracy and national security. As you stated however, this could amount to just suspicion with no actual evidence. Either way, this is definitely an issue that should be in approached bi-partisan matter. In an ideal world both parties will work together to resolve this issue, but we will see what happens.
