DHS Secretary Can’t Say If Hackers Have Changed Voters’ Registration Status

Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, appeared before a Senate Homeland Security Committee Hearing in which Sen. Jon Tester (D-MN) asked Sec. Johnson about the recent hacks that targeted voter databases.

Specifically, Tester wanted clarification on whether these hackers had changed voting results after gaining access to the databases.

“No, no, no, that’s not it,” Johnson said. “The matters are under active investigation. I think there’s a limited amount that we can say.”

Tester followed this up by asking if these hackers had changed voters registration status.
