Jeh Johnson on Russian Hacking: ‘We Have a Lot of Confidence in the Integrity of the Election Process Itself’

‘We’re in the mode now of wanting to leave no stone unturned’

JOHNSON: "Well first, we have a lot of confidence in the integrity of the election process itself. There are some 9,000 state and local jurisdictions that are involved in the election process, including national elections, we’ve looked at a fair amount of it. We’ve looked at what states and cities do. We have a lot of confidence in the process itself. We’re in the mode now of wanting to leave no stone unturned, and so, what DHS, my department, has been going over the last several weeks is contacting state election officials to say, we want to leave no stone unturned."
