Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) says she was pressured into resigning over sexual misconduct allegationsSheldon Whitehouse, the son of the late Sen. John McCain, has been arrested in Nevada for threatening his girlfriend to kill her.
The FBI said Tuesday it was investigating the threats.
In a Facebook post, the elder Paul said he is in good spirits.
The senator’s comments came after the House Intelligence Committee released a scathing report alleging that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election, but that there was no evidence of collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign.
The committee said the report was based on evidence that the Russians were “likely engaged in efforts to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election” and was based largely on anonymous U.S. intelligence officials.
The panel also concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin was “interested in the outcome” of the election.
The White House denied the allegations and said the Trump administration has no evidence to back up its claims.
“The Russians are a threat to us all,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told reporters.
“And it’s not just the Russians that we have to be worried about.
The Chinese and the North Koreans are also doing this.
And they’re doing it in a way that we don’t want to see.”
The FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the lead agency investigating Russia’s meddling in the election, said they are reviewing the committee’s report.
