    Russians penetrated U.S. voter systems

    The U.S. official in charge of protecting American elections from hacking says the Russians successfully penetrated the voter registration rolls of several U.S. states prior to the 2016 presidential election. In an exclusive interview with NBC News, Jeanette Manfra, the head of cybersecurity at the Department of Homeland Security, said she couldn't talk about classified information publicly, but in 2016, "We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated."

    Jeh Johnson, who was DHS secretary during the Russian intrusions, said, "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."

    We were able to determine that the scanning and probing of voter registration databases was coming from the Russian government." NBC News reported in Sept. 2016 that more than 20 states had been targeted by the Russia

    Maybe it's just me, but seems like THIS is what Congress should be focusing on instead of nonsense memo's.

    This really is a BIG DEAL.

    I don't think Republicans care, so long as they perceive Russia as being "on their team".

    They have decided that their fellow Americans (Democrats) are the enemy, and a foreign regime helping them maintain power is their friend. Totally the opposite of reality, but very much in support of fascism.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Republicans have been calling Russia the enemy since 2011. Obama laughed in Romney's face and told him the cold war was over. Sadly, idiots bought Obama's arrogance on Russia and dismissed Romney.

    *insert generic response to defend Obama*

    Wouldn't be in their best interest. Besides they have a useful idiot* in Trump.
