The Senate's second-ranking Democrat says that the Trump White House has no one in charge of combating Russian election interference.

“The fact that I cannot identify the one person in this administration that is working night and day to make sure that our elections and communications in this country are protected from Russian intrusion speaks volumes,” Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin. D-Ill., told Powerhouse Politics podcast hosts Rick Klein and MaryAlice Parks Wednesday. “The president has never taken it seriously."
