Bob Corker (R-TN) and Ben Cardin (D-MD), the chairman and ranking Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee; John McCain  (R-AZ) and Jack Reed (D-RI), who hold similar positions on the Armed Services Committee; and Richard Burr (R-NC) and Sen. Mark Warner (D-VV)  the leaders of the Intelligence Committee will meet to discuss how each committee plans to deal with the Russian hacking allegations.
