Top Dems Call For '9/11 Commission'-Style Meetings on Russia Hacks
Democratic leaders in both houses of Congress are calling for a '9/11 Commission'-type panel to investigate Russian involvement, if any, in the 2016 presidential election, Catherine Herridge reported.
Senator Charles Schumer of New York and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have recommended meetings take place in the wake of a CIA report of possible Russian meddling in the election.
"Even if Hillary Clinton had won, it's still important for us to have a... nonpartisan, bipartisan commission to review it," Pelosi said earlier Tuesday.
However, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan are not on the same page when it comes to the possible existence of Russian involvement.
Clapper testified before Congress that the existence of a Russian link to hacked DNC and Clinton email releases by WikiLeaks is tenuous.
Both the FBI and CIA have until the end of the week to brief Congress on the situation.
