Senators propose 9/11-style commission on Russian interference

A bipartisan pair of senators is moving to create a 9/11-style commission to examine the cyberattacks that took place during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced legislation on Friday to establish the National Commission on Cybersecurity of U.S. Election Systems to study the election-related cyberattacks — which the intelligence community has attributed to Russia — and make recommendations on how to guard against such activity going forward.

The commission would be modeled after the 9/11 Commission tasked with investigating the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against the United States.

There have previously been calls from lawmakers, mostly Democrats, for a 9/11-style commission to examine Russia’s interference campaign.

3. So that would be a commission that investigates nothing, issues a massive report devoid of content,

and exonerates everyone in the establishment from any wrong doing?
