May 17, 2019
FOIA to DOJ Office of Information Policy seeking records to identify Florida county governments breached by Russian intelligence in 2016. The report issued by the Office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller III confirmed that the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Army (GRU) was able to “gain access to the network of at least one Florida county government” in 2016, as part of a Russian effort to influence American elections that year.1 However, the report does not identify the affected county.
