FBI Director James Comey said that there is evidence that Russia attempted to hack “many” organizations that were involved in the 2016 presidential election, during his testimony before the House Select Intelligence Committee on Monday.
Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) asked Comey if there is any evidence that Russia tried to hack other entities associated with the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Yes, many others,” Comey replied.
Stefanik asked Comey to specify which organizations were targeted.
Comey was not able to tell Stefanik what organizations Russia targeted in an unclassified setting, but did say, “there were efforts to penetrate organizations associated with the Republican Party.”
“But the hacking, the use of cybertools,” Stefanik asked, “it was done to both parties?”
“Correct,” Comey responded.
