(Worthy News) - The Senate intelligence committee has concluded that Kremlin-supported operatives targeted the voting in nearly two dozen states in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, according to the first report in the panel’s yearlong probe.
“During the 2016 election, Russian entities targeted presidential campaign accounts, launched cyber-attacks against at least 21 state election systems, and hacked a U.S .voting systems software company,” committee member Sen. James Lankford, Oklahoma Republican, said in a press release accompanying the report, which was released late Tuesday.
No voter tallies or voter registration information is known to have been changed, but the report said that the Russians were “in a position to, at a minimum, alter or delete voter registration data” in a few states. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
