House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes released the following statement today on the investigations into cyber attacks during the U.S. presidential campaign:  

“The House Intelligence Committee is conducting vigorous oversight of the investigations into election-related cyber attacks. Seeing as cyber attacks, including Russian attacks, have been one of the committee’s top priorities for many years, we’ve held extensive briefings and hearings on the topic. As the FBI, CIA, and other elements of the Intelligence Community continue their investigations into these attacks, the House Intelligence Committee will remain a vigilant monitor of their efforts. We will also closely oversee the production  of the report on these attacks requested by President Obama to ensure its analytical integrity. At this time I do not see any benefit in opening further investigations, which would duplicate current committee oversight efforts and Intelligence Community inquiries.”
