Top Dem: Russian interference "much broader" than reported

Mark Warner, the top Dem on the Senate Intel Committee, said Tuesday that what has been made public thus far about Russian hacking during the 2016 election is the tip of the iceberg:

"The extent of the attacks is much broader than has been reported so far...none of these actions from the Russians stopped on Election Day."

This comes after the report that Russian military intelligence operatives targeted more than 100 local election officials in the buildup to the election. Warner said he is encouraging intelligence agencies to declassify the states hit by the hack before midterm elections.

Warner added a caveat: "I don't believe they got into changing actual voting outcomes."
