CABINET/CIA/MIKE POMPEO: "Pompeo told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence that he embraced those findings as spelled out in a comprehensive report of the intelligence community on the Russian breaches compiled earlier this month.
'With respect to this report in particular, it's pretty clear about what took place here, about Russian involvement in efforts to hack information and to have an impact on American democracy,' he said in response to questioning. 'This was an aggressive action taken by senior leadership inside of Russia.'
In his opening remarks, Pompeo listed Russia as well as China as 'sophisticated adversaries' in the cyber realm, saying 'hackers are all taking advantage of this new borderless environment' and 'the CIA must continue to be at the forefront of this issue.' "
