And that wasn't all.
“I'd also inform the committee,” the Intelligence Committee member went on, “that within the last 24 hours, at 10:45 a.m. yesterday, a second attempt was made, again against former members of my presidential campaign team, who had access to our internal information, again targeted from an IP address from an unknown location in Russia, and that effort was also unsuccessful.”
It's the first public confirmation we've gotten that suspected Russian hackers targeted anyone beyond the Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton presidential campaigns, and it comes smack-dab in the middle of two separate investigations into Russian hacking — including one that Rubio is participating in, in his role as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Rubio wouldn't go into detail, saying he'd reveal more if and when the committee releases a report.
But it's clear that the Russia story is continuing to grow — and that the longer the House and Senate investigations go on, the more we'll learn about it.
