McCain: We Need To Investigate Russia’s Possible Election Tampering

“It’s clear the Russians interfered” in last month’s presidential election, according to Sen. John McCain, who is proposing an investigation of whether Russia’s government tried to help Donald Trump win.

“I would like, in an ideal world, to have a select committee,” McCain said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” However, the Arizona Republican said it is more likely he will use his power as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee to establish a subcommittee to look into the allegations. He said the panel’s chairman would be Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and that one of the other members would be “a really smart Democrat.”

“We’ll go to work on it,” McCain vowed. “We’ll go to work immediately.” Politico reported that the senator claimed to be uncertain about the Russian government’s motives. “Whether they intended to interfere to the degree that they were trying to elect a certain candidate, I think that’s a subject of investigation,” he said. “The Russians have interfered in a lot of other elections, as part of Vladimir Putin’s ambition to regain Russian prominence and dominance in some parts of the world.”

According to Newsmax, Democratic senators Chuck Schumer of New York and Jack Reed of Rhode Island also have called for an investigation. In a joint statement, they (along with McCain and Graham) wrote: “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 senators stressed that the charges “should alarm every American.”
