Town explains what needs to be done for the two sides to negotiate in good faith while CQ cybersecurity editor Patrick Pexton explains how it's playing on Capitol Hill.

Mark Warner Warns of New Cold War With Russia
Top Democrat on Intelligence panel says West is falling behind

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says the United States and its allies are in a new Cold War with Russia that he calls a “shadow war” every bit as serious as the 20th-century struggle, but one using new indirect and amorphous tools and weapons.

America, Warner said Thursday, needs to bring this new war into the open and use all the new tools of technology to fight back hard.
