The acting director of Homeland Security’s Cyber Division said that Russian interference in 2016 did not affect vote tallies.
Samuel Liles, acting director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Division said at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday that Russian interference in the 2016 election did not affect vote tallies.
Liles noted that Russia targeted the voting infrastructure of 21 states, but “none of these systems were involved in vote tallying.”
Russian intrusions succeeded in violating some systems, but failed in violating others, according to Liles.
“We had no indication prior to the election that adversaries were planning cyber operations against election infrastructure that would change the outcome of the 2016 election,” he said.
Liles also pointed to various safeguards that would protect the integrity of American election infrastructure.
