McConnell: No Select Hacking Committee Needed

The Hill reports:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said no select committee is needed to look into the Russian meddling in the US. presidential election.

McConnell said during an interview that aired Monday with Kentucky Educational Television that the issue of Russian hacking is a “serious issue,” according to The Washington Examiner.

But it “doesn’t require” a special committee, he said. “We have a Senate Intelligence Committee and a House Intelligence Committee, run by knowledgeable, responsible people,” he said.

“There’s no question that the Russians were messing around in our election. It is a matter of genuine concern and it needs to be investigated.” “In the Senate, we’re gonna investigate that in what we call regular order,” he said.
