democracy, and it demands at least the level of response President Obama laid out

cybersecurity and reduce the risk of future such attacks, which is why I reiterate
my call to Speaker Ryan to appoint a Select Committee on Cybersecurity to examine
the attacks. The American people deserve a full accounting of the facts.
