Bush On Russian Hacking: We Need Answers

Appearing on NBC’s Today, former President George W. Bush said, “We all need answers” regarding the level of involvement Russia had in influencing the 2016 presidential election, but added, “I’m not sure the right avenue to take.”

Bush expressed hesitation at appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the case, citing the fact that he is not a lawyer. He did note, however, that he trusted Intelligence Committee chairman, Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), and would support whatever route Burr recommended.
