We now know that Texas is among the states whose election systems were compromised by Russian hackers before the 2016 elections. The fear is that it will happen again in 2018. On Tuesday, outgoing NSA Chief and head of the military's Cyber Command, Michael Rogers, testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that the administration had given Rogers' agency no orders related to preventing further Russian meddling. But some states are denying that interference occurred, or that it was successful.
Top intelligence officials are testifying before U.S. Senators this morning on Capitol Hill. Heads of the FBI, CIA, NSA and the Defense Intelligence Agency will brief the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on “worldwide threats,” including the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and North Korea’s nuclear program.
