Den republikanska senatorn Lindsey Graham från South Carolina vill att kongressen ska utreda vilken roll Putin spelade i presidentvalet. Enligt uppgifter ska ryska hackare legat bakom inbrottet i demokratiska partiorganisationen DNC:s datorer och sedan offentliggjort allt material genom Wikileaks.

Just as Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin’s friendship was really starting to bloom, some trouble back home may complicate Trump’s vision of a new era in U.S.-Russia relations. On Tuesday, Republican senator Lindsey Graham called on the Senate to open an investigation into Russia’s reported interference into the presidential election.

“Assuming for a moment that we do believe that the Russian government was controlling outside organizations that hacked into our election, they should be punished,” Graham said. “Putin should be punished.”

I går gick John McCain till skarp attack mot Trumps närmande till Ryssland och Putin. McCain och Graham ses som hökar och parhästar i kongressen.
