What started as news articles reporting potential danger to American elections from Russian hackers has quickly morphed into a call for a federal agency to protect our elections from those alleged Russian hackers. But many of the threats cited have nothing to do with the Internet, and giving blanket protective authority to a federal agency would grant broad powers far in excess of what the U.S. Constitution allows.
State-sponsored hackers penetrate the systems of other nations. It happens regularly. The United States does it. China does it. Russia does it. Iran does it. Sometimes, hacking reveals that someone in the hacking nation is working with the enemy. When that happens, someone dies.

Expressing what appears to be a widespread delusion among America's elected representatives, GOP Congressman Tim Walberg of Michigan repeatedly claimed in a discussion last week that Congress can do whatever it wants provided there are enough votes to pass it. Despite taking an oath to the U.S. Constitution, which places strict limits on the power of both Congress and the federal government, the Republican lawmaker sounded largely unfamiliar with those restraints. And unfortunately for the American people, Walberg is actually among the more Constitution-friendly lawmakers in a Congress that has been lawlessly running wild for decades now.
