Pelosi calls for further investigation into election hacking claims

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has called for a bipartisan Congressional review of the CIA’s claims that Russia interfered with the presidential election.

“The U.S. intelligence community has determined that Russia interfered in U.S. elections.  There must be no equivocation or ignoring the seriousness of the intelligence community’s conclusion about Russia’s actions.  Regardless of the outcome of the election, the American people deserve to know the truth and a commitment to protect our democracy from foreign meddling,” Pelosi states.

“Congress has a responsibility to investigate Russian hacking into our election.  I also support the proposal by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Intelligence Committee Member Eric Swalwell to establish a bipartisan, independent commission.

“Speaker Ryan must join the bipartisan call for a formal investigation into Russia’s unprecedented assault on our democracy.”
