Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.) introduced legislation on Thursday to create a response center to combat Russian cyber attacks amid ongoing probes into Moscow’s interference in last year’s election.
Dubbed the National Russian Threat Response Center, the new initiative would be responsible for examining information relevant to Russia’s online aggression and seek to close gaps in intelligence collected about the Kremlin.
“Russia’s attack on our election was not guided by party affiliation but instead by a deep desire to weaken trust in our institutions and shake the very foundation of our democracy,” Kennedy said in a statement.
