    RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan has commented on US Senate's proposals to revoke the license of the broadcaster for activity in the United States over alleged Russia's involvement in the US presidential election.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the broadcaster, Dr. Thomas Rid, King’s College London War Studies Professor, hinted at the idea concerning the revoking of RT's license in the United States during a Thursday meeting of the US Senate Intelligence Committee devoted to alleged Russia's involvement in the November election.

    "Senators even said that RT and Sputnik together undermine US nationals' faith in their own media. I even do not know what is more surprising — senators' faith in our unlimited opportunities or their lack of faith in a conscious choice of their people," Simonyan said in a comment published by RT on Friday.

    US Democratic Senator Mark Warner claimed during the meeting that an "outside foreign adversary effectively sought to hijack" the US presidential election.

    According to Warner, Russia allegedly employed a disinformation campaign on social media, including by generating fake news for voters in such states as Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin.
