Coons: Yates Was ‘Clear’ Russia ‘Will Be Emboldened’ After Succeeding in Interfering in Our Elections

‘We need to follow up with actions that would impose greater costs on Russia’

EXCERPT:

COONS: "She was very clear in her warnings to all of us that Russia, having succeeded in their interference in our 2016 election will simply be emboldened. She and former director of National Intelligence Clapper, both said that the threat to our democracy going forward is real and that we need to follow up with actions that would impose greater costs on Russia for their continuing interference in France's election, in Germany's upcoming election and likely in our 2018 and 2020 elections, if we don’t take a stronger stand."
