The United States Speaker, Nancy Pelosi has said that the news of the significant and far-reaching cyber-attacks targeting United States government agencies and corporations is further disturbing evidence that malign actors, including Russia, remain intent on undermining the national security and democracy.

In a statement issued on Saturday, over the hacking of US Government agencies and corporation, she said sadly and alarmingly, the Trump Administration has for four years turned a blind eye to Putin’s attacks on the American democracy, including his ongoing efforts to attack the election systems and undermine faith in the democratic institutions.

Pelosi said, “In stark contrast to Trump and the Republicans, House Democrats have taken forceful action to defend our democracy from foreign attack, including through the Secure Act and Safe Act to protect our election infrastructure and the National Defense Authorization Act and additional legislation to provide tough sanctions against bad actors.

““Working with the Biden-Harris Administration, the Congress will take strong, immediate action to secure our nation’s infrastructure and digital defenses against these attacks.  The era of impunity for our adversaries’ assault on our democracy is over”, She said.
