Senate Intel asks 21 states to publicize election hacking

The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked election officials in 21 states to make public information about Russian efforts to hack their elections systems during the 2016 elections, the panel's top Democrat said Wednesday. 
The request was made in a letter sent last week "to all relevant state election officials" from Sens. Richard Burr(R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), the panel's chairman and vice chairman, respectively, Warner revealed in his prepared remarks before a hearing on global election interference. 
"I do not see how Americans are made safer when they do not know which state elections systems Russia tried to hack," Warner said.
