Chairman Schiff on Charges Against Iranian Cyber Criminals

"Protecting our elections from malign foreign interference is of paramount importance, and these actions against Iranian cyber criminals underscore this administration’s commitment to using all tools at its disposal to punish those responsible.

 "The Iran-backed effort to interfere in the 2020 U.S. presidential election highlights the urgent need to track and expose sophisticated cyber-enabled operations. Disinformation about electoral integrity is particularly insidious, as it risks undercutting faith and trust in our democratic institutions. It is incumbent on all of us to identify, repudiate, and stay vigilant against attempts to spread such harmful disinformation, while continuing to harden our cyber and elections infrastructure against state-sponsored intrusions."
