Senate Will Hold Election Security Briefing
Following report on Russian meddling in 2016
On Tuesday, Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that a briefing will be given to the Senate regarding election security. The briefing is in partial response to the special counsel’s report on Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.
The majority leader’s comments mark the first time he has confirmed that there will be an all-members election security briefing since Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York said from the Senate floor that he had received assurances that there would be a closed-door briefing with administration officials.
Senator McConnell did not say when the briefing would be held.
