Congress has “special responsibility” to probe claims of Russia using hackers to influence election in Donald Trump’s favor, White House spokesman Josh Earnest says in press briefing.
“It was the president elect who hired a campaign chairman with extensive, lucrative campaign ties to Russia,” Earnest says. It “was the president-elect who has a national security adviser on the campaign who was a paid adviser to RT, the Russian propaganda network”
