December 9, 2016 20:31

The White House said on Friday the intelligence review ordered by President Barack Obama on cyber attacks involving US elections will go beyond the Nov. 8 vote and will include the 2008 election.

"What the president asked for is a review to look at malicious cyber activity tied to our presidential election cycle," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said at a news briefing. "It will be broader than just looking at this past election."
