Nunes issues statement on cyber-attack investigations
On December 16, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement on the continuing investigations into cyber-attacks during the U.S. presidential campaign:
In the course of the House Intelligence Committee’s ongoing oversight of cyber-attacks during the U.S. presidential campaign, we have not received any information from Intelligence Community (IC) agencies indicating that they have developed new assessments on this issue. I am alarmed that supposedly new information continues to leak to the media but has not been provided to Congress despite my letter asking for more information on this topic, and despite the Committee’s request to schedule an urgent classified briefing that would set the record straight on the IC’s current assessment. As part of its ongoing oversight, the Committee has now planned visits to the FBI, NSA, CIA, and DIA in January so members can further investigate this issue in the 115th Congress.
