DHS Secretary: No Doubt that Russia Interfered in Election

‘What I would say is I don’t think there is any question in the Intel community or at DHS that Russians attempted to infiltrate and interfere with our electoral system’

EXCERPT:

ALEXANDER: "So can you say definitively that during the campaign Russia at the direction of Vladimir Putin launched an attack on our country and that it was done to favor the election of Donald Trump?"
NIELSEN: "What I would say is I don't think there is any question in the intel community or at DHS that Russians attempted to infiltrate and interfere with our electoral system. They have the capability, the have the intent. What we're doing at DHS is to work with states to prepare on that election infrastructure piece. That's the piece we have lead on, but I don't think there is any doubt that they did it."
