The top Democrats on the US Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees said on Friday a report on Russian activity related to the 2016 US election should inspire a strong response to prevent a repeat.

Representative Adam Schiff, his counterpart on the House panel, said Congress must undertake “thorough investigations” to determine what happened and how, and how to protect the US government.
