Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell echoed his colleagues in the upper chamber’s call to launch an investigation into Russia’s alleged hacking in an attempt to sway the election results in favor of President-elect Donald Trump.
McConnell referred to the CIA’s findings as “disturbing,” noting he believes the issue needs to be looked into on a bipartisan basis.
The comments follow a group of bipartisan senators — Sens. Chuck Schumer of New York, John McCain of Arizona, Jack Reed of Rhode Island and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — calling on members to come together and look into cyberattacks launched by foreign governments.
