Republican John McCain and three other senators called for a congressional inquiry into allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, but a top adviser to President-elect Donald Trump said there’s no public consensus among intelligence agencies over Moscow’s role.

McCain told CNN on Sunday that Democratic President Barack Obama has no strategy for dealing with Russian cyber attacks.
