The White House says it supports a Congressional investigation into Russian interference in the Presidential election.
At today’s White House briefing… Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the review is warranted when you consider the stakes and the consequences.
Over the weekend there were reports the CIA concluded that Russia released hacked e-mails to help Donald Trump win the Presidency.
Earnest says Americans do not need a security clearance to determine who benefited from Russian cyber activity.
Also… earnest reaffirmed President Barack Obama’s commitment to a One-China policy… stating Taiwan should not be used as a bargaining chip to increase leverage with China over trade and other issues.
President-Elect Trump said on “Fox News Sunday” that he would not feel bound by a One-China policy unless the u-s makes a deal with China having to do with other things… including trade.
