Russian hackers of 2016 election

The Russian government successfully hacked into the voter rolls in a small number of USA states during the run-up to the 2016 election, it was revealed on Wednesday.

"2016 was a wake-up call and now it's incumbent upon states and the Feds to do something about it before our democracy is attacked again", Johnson said.

The Russians were probing the voter rolls for a variety of reasons.

Following the 2016 presidential election, US intelligence officials noted Russia's deliberate attempts to undermine American democracy by influencing voters across social media platforms. Johnson says the nation's electoral systems are a part of the nation's federally protected critical infrastructure and could be targeted by hackers.

Texas, California, and five other states claimed their voter systems have not been affected by the hacking.

Manfra disagreed, claiming that "they have all taken it seriously".

Manfra's revelation comes hours after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed that Russian hackers are already targeting the upcoming congressional midterm elections. In an interview on Tuesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Russian Federation is already trying to interfere in the upcoming congressional elections. The systems targeted were not involved in vote tallying. "Whether they affected the outcome (of the election) is another question, but they meddled, and that's risky for democracy". "Foreign aggressions, including cyber attacks, disinformation and financial influence, should never be downplayed or tolerated", Bush said, according to CNN.

The liberal media continues to prove that its more about shaping events than reporting on events, which explains why President Donald Trump's "fake news" characterization resonates so well with the American people.
