REPORT: Bernie Sanders lashes out in response to alleged Russian hack of Ukrainian gas company

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday criticized Facebook and Senate Republicans in response to reports of Russia hacking the Ukrainian gas company at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump.
“The 2020 election is likely to be the most consequential election in modern American history, and I am alarmed by new reports that Russia recently hacked into the Ukrainian gas company at the center of the impeachment trial, as well as Russia’s plans to once again meddle in our elections and in our democracy,” the 2020 presidential candidate said in a statement.
The article goes on to state the following:
“After our intelligence agencies unanimously agreed that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, including with thousands of paid ads on Facebook, the New York Times now reports that Russia likely represents the biggest threat of election meddling in 2020, including through disinformation campaigns, promoting hatred, hacking into voting systems, and by exploiting the political divisions sewn by Donald Trump. Meanwhile, the Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, has shown again and again his total disinterest in taking even basic steps to stand up to Russian interference.”
On Monday, Cybersecurity firm Area 1 Security claimed that Russian hackers launched a phishing campaign against Burisma Holdings in November 2019, the report states.
