Paul Ryan: "We all knew Russia was trying to meddle with our election"

House Speaker Paul Ryan told CBS' Norah O'Donnell on Wednesday that Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and he sent a letter before the election warning the secretaries of state to guard their data, and to "watch out" for Russian interference.

"We all knew this before the election. We all knew, Russia was trying to meddle with our election. And we already know right now they are trying to do it with other countries," said Ryan. "I think we have a special responsibility given our capabilities to make sure we help our allies guard against this meddling by Russia in their elections just like they tried to with our election."
