BISAC: POL008000

In 2016, Russia meddled in the Presidential election through a series of cyber attacks and information warfare of state and local election jurisdictions. Their goals were to undermine the credibility of the outcome and sow discord and chaos among the American people. Foreign interference in democracy cannot be tolerated. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) designated the election infrastructure used in federal elections as a component of U.S. critical infrastructure. Chapters 1 and 2 report on efforts to enhance election technology and bolster cyber readiness. Chapter 3 focuses on Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation of what Russia did to democracy in 2016, and what Russia is still trying to do to democracy today. Chapter 4 focuses on right of Congress to see the full Special Counsel report.
