Senators urge Obama to declassify information on Russian involvement in U.S. election

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, along with a group of Democratic Senators, is calling for President Obama to release more information about Russia’s involvement in this year’s U.S. election.

Wyden and the six other senators sent the letter to the White House on Tuesday.

The letter said, “We believe there is additional information concerning the Russian Government and the U.S. election that should be declassified and released to the public. We are conveying specifics through classified channels.”

Portland NBC affiliate KGW reports some scientists say it’s possible the election was hacked in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, but other experts said hacking the election would be very difficult.

In October, President Obama blamed the Russian government for trying to hack and interfere with the election process.
