Four powerful U.S. senators — two on each side of the aisle — on Sunday called for Republicans and Democrats to join forces to probe and fight Russian interference in the U.S. political process.
The "stakes are too high" for the issue to become partisan, the group of senior lawmakers wrote.
"For years, foreign adversaries have directed cyberattacks at America's physical, economic, and military infrastructure, while stealing our intellectual property," Senators John McCain, R-Ariz., Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Jack Reed, D-R.I., said in the statement released Sunday.
"Now our democratic institutions have been targeted. Recent reports of Russian interference in our election should alarm every American," they added.
