Hosted by

Senators from both parties this weekend called for a bipartisan panel to investigate Russian interference in the election. This isn’t the first time Russia has tried to affect our politics. America also has a long history of trying to sway elections. The U.S. has supported coups and revolutions; sent in troops; and used more subtle tactics to influence election results all over the world.
