    Top DHS official says Russian hackers infiltrated US voter systems in 2016

    The head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security revealed Wednesday that Russia managed to hack into voter registration rolls of several states during the 2016 presidential election.

    U.S. intelligence official Jeanette Manfra told NBC News her department saw a small number of states where Moscow was “successfully” able to hack voters systems, despite there being no evidence that registration rolls were altered in anyway.

    “We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated,” she said.

    She declined to go into further detail about the classified information but said there was “no doubt” the Russian government was behind the attacks.

    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed that hackers were already targeting the upcoming midterm elections.

    “I think it's important we just continue to say to Russia, ‘Look, you think we don't see what you're doing. We do see it and you need to stop. If you don't, you're going to just continue to invite consequences for yourself,’” Tillerson told Fox News.

    Following the 2016 presidential election, U.S. intelligence officials noted Russia’s deliberate attempts to undermine American democracy by influencing voters across social media platforms.

    A special counsel was appointed shortly after to look into possible collusion between the Trump camp and Moscow.

    It turns out the Russians were trying to help Hillary. They had the goods on Crooked Hillary with the uranium one deal.

    Why would they take a chance on Trump when they already owned the Clintons.

    Obama knew about Russia's attempts to hack our elections, but he didn't care since he knew they were trying to help their business partner, Hillary, so Obama did nothing to stop it.

    Let me get this straight. Russia was successful hacking our system, but didn't make any changes?
    Ya, right.
