U.S. Sen. Deb Fischer says there is no evidence computer hacking during the 2016 campaign went beyond political organizations.
She says no one has shown that voting equipment or data at the polls were tampered with on Election Day.
“Of course, when you’re dealing with cyber and looking at the security of not just an election system, but also of security of what all of us have in financial institutions, we need to bolster what we have,” Fischer said during an interview with LNK Today on Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN.
Fischer says she wants to know more about how hackers got into the campaigns’ computers.
“So in order to figure out how these different computers and servers were hacked, we need to have an investigation into it,” Fischer said. “I think that was important with Hillary Clinton with her private server. That kind of brought it to light, that we have to be careful.”
Fischer says cyber-attacks or attempts are constantly happening.
She says the federal government has a good system in place, but could be improved as technology changes.
“But we all need to realize, we’re open to that (hacking),” Fischer said. “It happened to the Democrats. It happened with the Clinton campaign. It could happen to anybody.
