Lindsey Graham Calls for Investigation Into Russian Election Tampering

Today the New Yorker Magazine reported that,

On Tuesday, Republican senator Lindsey Graham called on the Senate to open an investigation into Russia’s reported interference into the presidential election.

“Assuming for a moment that we do believe that the Russian government was Lindsey Graham; Donald Trumpcontrolling outside organizations that hacked into our election, they should be punished,” Graham said. “Putin should be punished.”

During the election, American intelligence officials repeatedly voiced concerns that Russia was using cyberattacks — hacking the DNC and leaking emails damaging to Hillary Clinton, for example — to influence the outcome of the election.

The article goes on to say Graham already has some support for his investigation.  John McCain has also voiced concerns about Putin.

With the U.S. presidential transition underway, Vladimir Putin has said in recent days that he wants to improve relations with the United States … We should place as much faith in such statements as any other made by a former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened America’s allies, and attempted to undermine America’s elections.
