Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp on Wednesday asked President-elect Donald Trump to investigate the Department of Homeland Security's apparent attempt to hack his office's computer system.
"Since contacting DHS with these concerns, we have collaborated with the agency and provided extensive, additional information," Kemp wrote. "Last night I received a letter from Secretary Johnson which lacked any specific information as to the attacks' intent or origin despite the fact that many questions remain unanswered."
DHS has denied it tried to break through the state's computer firewall. An agency spokesman did not immediately return requests for comment Wednesday.
DHS has said previously that it believes an employee was legitimately using databases on the Secretary of State's website and that the employee's computer was configured incorrectly. That configuration mistakenly made it look like the employee was trying to hack into Kemp's systems.
