Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco reported Friday that President Barack Obama ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to deliver a report on alleged cyber-security attacks and foreign intervention in the 2016 election before he leaves office on January 20.
“The president has directed the intelligence community to conduct a full review of what happened during the 2016 election process … and to capture lessons learned from that and to report to a range of stakeholders, to include the Congress,” Monaco said during an event hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, according to Reuters.

This is all new. Less than two weeks ago the White House claimed the vote accurately reflected the will of the people.

Monaco added that while cyber attacks were nothing new, they may have “crossed a new threshold” this time around.
“We’ve seen in 2008 and in this last election system malicious cyber activity,” she said.
Apparently, it all worked out well in the 2008 election — not so much in 2016. Odd.
