A sweeping new report by congressional Democrats warns of deepening Russian interference throughout Europe and concludes that even as some Western democracies have responded with aggressive counter-measures, President Donald Trump has offered no strategic plan to bolster their efforts or safeguard the U.S. from again falling victim to the Kremlin’s systematic meddling. The 200-plus page report released by Cardin, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, comes without sign-off from Republicans on the panel.(AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
