Russians penetrated multiple states' voter registration rolls in the 2016 presidential election, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security told NBC News on Wednesday.
Mantra told the news agency she could not speak publicly about any classified information, but that in 2016, DHS "saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated".
Which is more or less exactly what Manfra said in the NBC interview.
"We were able to determine that the scanning and probing of voter registration databases was coming from the Russian government", Manfra added.
U.S. officials told NBC that there is no evidence that any of the rolls were altered.
Five states, including Texas and California, denied that they ever suffered attacks. Johnson says the nation's electoral systems are a part of the nation's federally protected critical infrastructure and could be targeted by hackers.
Russian targeting of voter registration databases became known in the months leading up to the election, when the Federal Bureau of Investigation warned state governments that hackers had infiltrated the Illinois State Board of Elections and attempted to do the same in Arizona.
Manfra disagreed, saying, the states "have all taken it seriously". He has also yet to unambiguously acknowledge that Russian Federation interfered in the election to get him elected. The systems targeted were not involved in vote tallying. "There's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled".
Special counsel Robert Mueller, meanwhile, is looking into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and the Russians. "Foreign aggressions, including cyber attacks, disinformation and financial influence, should never be downplayed or tolerated", Bush said, according to CNN.
