President Barack Obama has ordered a full review into 2016 election hacking by the Russians, Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Adviser Lisa Monaco said Friday. “The President has directed the Intelligence Community to conduct a full review of what happened during the 2016 election process.
It is to capture lessons learned from that and to report to a range of stakeholders,” she said at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. “This is consistent with the work that we did over the summer to engage Congress on the threats that we were seeing.”
Monaco said the administration would be mindful of the consequences of revealing the results of their review publicly.
The review is intended to be done before Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20.
