Barr confirms Pompeo's words about Russian cyberattack
“From the information I have, I agree with Secretary Pompeo’s assessment. It’s certainly appears to be Russians, but I’m not going to discuss it beyond that,” Barr said.
Immediately after accusations of Russia were made by US officials, the Russian Foreign Ministry offered to cooperate in investigating the incident and did not take the blame.
The agencies compromised include the Department of Energy and its National Nuclear Security Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, the State Department, the Treasury Department and the Commerce Department.
