LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell rejects calls for a special committee to investigate Russian interference in the U.S. election.

The Senate Majority Leader says Moscow's hack of Democratic emails in an effort to help Donald Trump is a serious issue.

But he says the regular Senate Intelligence Committee is able to look into it.

There's a push from senators on both sides of the aisle for a special committee.
