FBI Report Squarely Blames Russia for Meddling in 2016 Presidential Election

The FBI issued its first statement on the cyberattacks targeting the 2016 presidential election, blaming Russian intelligence services for launching a broad hacking campaign.

In a 13-page report co-authored by Homeland Security, the FBI concluded that Russia’s foreign intelligence agency, the FSB, sent a malicious link to U.S. government targets, Reuters reports. 

Russia continues to deny the hacking claims.

The FBI’s report came on the same day President Obama imposed retaliatory measures, including the expulsion of 35 Russian intelligence operatives.

The FBI said the Democratic National Committee was among the targets. The DNC also was infiltrated by another Russian agency, the military GRU, in early 2016.

Even some Republicans criticized Russia’s meddling in the election.
