Reports from The Hill claim that the Senate Foreign Relations Committee will be investigating the response of Obama administration to the Russian hacking. Sen. Bob Corker is overseeing the committee and they’re planning to hold a closed-door briefing with the administration officials. The briefing will be held on Thursday.
According to other reports from The Hill, the Obama administration have announced a slate of economic sanctions at the end of December, with whom they targeted the FSB and GRU – Russia’s two main intelligence organizations along with four individual GRU officers, and three companies which provided support to the GRU. Six individuals that implicated in the campaign will also be targeted.
Corker stated late last year that the committee would probe the Russian hacking allegations as well as a boarder review of the U.S.-Moscow relationship.
“We are going to systematically walk through the entire Russia issue and fully understand what has transpired.” said Corker.
According to statements of the committee, the administration has refused to provide witnesses for a public hearing so far.
Along with the Foreign Relations Committee, the Intelligence and Armed Services committees are also expected to investigate allegations that Russia slipped their fingers in the race for the White House.
