“As Chair of the Democratic National Committee — one of the main victims of the Russian attacks — I ask that you support and provide any needed assistance to an independent, bipartisan investigation of the attacks that includes public hearings,” the interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee wrote in a letter to Congress Sunday.
“What we do know is that these intrusions were not just ‘hacks’ — they were attacks on the United States by a foreign power, and they must be treated as such,” she said.
Brazile wants answers to questions regarding Russia’s intent and how the U.S. is preparing to prevent future attacks.
She called for the investigation to be “thorough, independent, and bipartisan.”
“In defeat and when mistakes have been made, our country has a proud, honored and timeless tradition of coming together and rising above partisan politics to determine the truth, learn from the experience, and become stronger as a nation,” she said. “We hope that Congress will undertake this important work as quickly as possible.”
