According to The Hill, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will investigate the Obama administration’s response to Russian hacking.
The committee is overseen by Sen. Bob Corker, and they plan to hold a closed-door briefing with administration officials on Thursday.
From The Hill:
The Obama administration announced a slate of economic sanctions late last month targeting the GRU and the FSB, two of Russia’s main intelligence organizations, as well as four individual GRU officers, three companies that provided support to the GRU and six individuals implicated in the campaign.
Corker said late last year that the committee would probe allegations of Russian hacking, as well as a broader review of the U.S.-Moscow relationship. Corker said, “We are going to systematically walk through the entire Russia issue and fully understand what has transpired.”
According to the committee, the administration has so far refused to provide witnesses for a public hearing.
In addition to the Foreign Relations Committee, the Armed Services and Intelligence committees are expected to investigate allegations that Russia meddled in the White House race.
