Watch: Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson Appears Before House Intel Committee

Jun 21, 2017

Wednesday is another big day of testimony before two Congressional committees investigating Russian attempts to influence the 2016 Presidential election. Notably, former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson (under President Obama) is scheduled to appear Wednesday before the House Intelligence Committee. 

Members of Congress will quiz Johnson on the details of widespread Russian cyber-attacks that targeted U.S. elections systems last year, and so-called "active measures," a Russian information warfare strategy which includes spreading falsehoods.

The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. ET. Video will be archived after the hearing concludes.
