House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has reacted to a report about Russian hacking efforts by calling the findings "stunning," reports ABC News.
On Friday morning, she and a small group of top lawmakers were briefed about the U.S. intelligence community's investigation into allegations that Russia tried to sway the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Pelosi has been quoted as telling the press afterwards, "It was really quite a stunning disclosure."

She reportedly went on to say, "Regardless of the outcome of the election, the American people have the right to know what a foreign power did to disrupt our election."
The Huffington Post notes that at one point in her remarks, she apparently alluded to WikiLeaks, saying, "There is no question that...the Russians disrupted and then they released the information to a source. And this is the path which would then on a partisan basis only release Democratic emails."
Pelosi indicated that at least part of the report will soon be made available to the public.
