The committee said that Russia’s influence should result in “renewed attention to vulnerabilities in U.S. voting infrastructure” and that the U.S. “must create effective deterrence” to prevent this from happening again in 2020 and beyond.

In the first volume the report, “Russian Efforts Against Election Infrastructure,” the report concluded “the Russian government directed extensive activity, beginning in at least 2014 and carrying into at least 2017, against U.S. election infrastructure at the state and local level.” The report notes, however, that there is “no evidence that any votes were changed or that any voting machines were manipulated.”

The Senate Intelligence Committee said that its investigation “has spanned more than 15 open hearings, more than 200 witness interviews, and nearly 400,000 documents.”, and also said further reports would also answer “remaining counterintelligence questions.”
