The Democratic National Committee was overwhelmed by Russia's cyber attacks during the presidential campaign "daily, hourly" and were "no match," interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile said Sunday.

"We were fighting foreign adversary in the cyber space — the Democratic National Committee — we were no match," Brazile told ABC’s "This Week."

Brazile spoke to host Martha Raddatz as she was preparing a DNC letter to Congress calling for an "open, independent, bipartisan investigation."

The "election was tainted by this intrusion," which sowed "discord between [Hillary] Clinton and [Bernie] Sanders' campaign" and President-elect Donald Trump "used this information to sow division . . . used it as if he received daily talking points," according to Brazile.

"That’s why I think it’s important that Congress takes a very open approach to looking at what happened, how it evolved, what was Russia’s motives," she added.

Brazile would not criticize President Barack Obama's lack of action against the hacks during the campaign, but she admitted to being a "little disappointed" the "president's party" and its candidates were under "constant attack" and "never felt comfortable" during the campaign.

"Having a foreign adversary, a foe, interfere and to use hacked, stolen emails and weaponize them against the Democrats — not the Republicans, not Trump — but against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party, the president's party, we should be outraged by it," Brazile told host Raddatz. "I know I'm still outraged by it, but I want to make sure this never happens again."
