Comey Says 'No Doubt' Russia Tried to Disrupt Election

The Senate is expected to vote this week on a measure to punish Russia with sanctions for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, and President Donald Trump would be “betraying democracy” if he vetoes it, Senator Lindsey Graham said.

Graham, Republican of South Carolina, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation’’ on Sunday that Russia must face retribution for hacking into Democratic Party emails and other actions -- from providing arms to the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers, to colluding to allow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to keep chemical weapons and being complicit as those munitions were used against children.
