Deutch Statement on FBI Briefing on FL Election Hack
Following this morning's F.B.I. briefing for the Florida Congressional delegation, Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) issued this statement:
“Today’s classified briefing was important, but much of this information can and should be shared with Florida voters and the American people, and I asked the FBI to reconsider their decision to block the disclosure of the information.
"I am thankful that bipartisan members of the Florida delegation are working together to protect our election infrastructure, but I’m disappointed that that concern seems to end where Special Counsel Mueller’s report begins. The Mueller Report documented Russian attempts to influence voters and infiltrate computer networks in Florida.
"We need to all work together so that every American understands exactly what happened in 2016 and understands what’s necessary to defend our country from ongoing attacks by foreign powers.”
