Intel community didn’t tell California, six other states that Russia compromised websites, voting databases

The U.S. intelligence community developed substantial evidence that state websites or voter registration systems in seven states were compromised by Russian-backed covert operatives prior to the 2016 election — but never told the states involved, according to multiple U.S. officials.

    Even if true, did such “penetration” change one vote cast in the election?
