This proposal is one big double standard. How can the United States hold such a pious position? The CIA has both covertly and openly interfered in more than 80 elections within 40 different countries over the past 50 years. Last I checked it is United States tax dollars that funds the CIA. Before passing this bill, the government would have to first sanction itself, punishing all members of current and past administrations that directed such clandestine operations. This would include previous CIA Director and past President George H W Bush. Were the Russians guilty of cyber crime? Probably. I suggest you swallow your pride, accept the fact that each political party is guilty of their own political espionage, and move on.
