Should Congress set up a full independent investigation commission into Russian interference in 2016 and 2020?

That's what the intelligence agencies are for. But Trump, being a Putin stooge, refuses to accept their findings. He would treat any Congressional report the same: if it says Russia is guilty, it must inherently be biased. Just like any jury that finds his cronies guilty is biased.

They should do an investigation of FOREIGN influence, past, present, and future.
Wasn't it proven that Israel, Turkey, Ukraine, and Saudi Arabia also interfered in the 2016 elections? Wasn't Roger Stone, Michael Flynn and a few others convicted of accepting money?
Was Hillary Clinton's purchase of the Steele Dossier ok because even though it was created by a former British spy, she paid cash for it?
I think the American public might be getting an education in how international relations work. We and many other nations have been trying to influence each others elections, and sometimes fostering coups when we don't like the results, for millenia.

Yeah, Russian interference in the 2016 election was investigated. It amounted to hate propaganda against both sides, false accusations, the Steel dossier and a couple hundred thousand worth of propaganda on face-book. The entire Russia interference mania amounts to nothing more than just a big alibi for Hillary's loss. The democrats are going to be too lazy to invent a new alibi for their upcoming loss in 2020. They will be blaming the Russians gain. it's strange how the democrats were not blaming Russians for their wins in the 2018 elections ~ Go Figure ~

Only AFTER the New Congress takes control next January!
Actually though Congress should pushed for half a dozen independent counsels to investigate the Trump administration!

Sure. Investigations that don't accomplish anything are a congressional specialty.
