florida and nearly two dozen other states saw similar scanning probing or breaches of their election systems. >> i think the real intent was for somebody to tell us that they could get information if they wanted to, to scare us into thinking that our elections aren't safe and that's the most dangerous thing of all. >> reporter: u.s. officials have consistently said that they do not believe russian hackers actually affected the vote count or the outcome of the election and even with this new information sources say they stand by that assessment. but, intelligence officials view this new information as further confirmation that russia interfered in the 2016 election. this morning the kremlin, again, denied any involvement. norah. >> jeff, thank you very much. anti-terror investigators in london are searching more locations for ties to saturday's deadly attack. people across britain paused this morning to honor the 7 people killed.

of london, sadiq khan whose public statements the president characterized as pathetic. sadiq khan suggested mr. trump is no longer welcome in london. >> the president of the u.s. and the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for. >> reporter: that's not the only distraction. yesterday the white house legislative affairs director admitted that having congress focused on the russia probe detract from the trump administration's agenda. norah, that's making it harder for them to achieve their goals. >> thank you very much. president trump will not claim executive privilege to stop james comey from testifying to congress thursday. the white house says the president wants to quote facilitate a swift and thorough examination of the facts sought by the senate intelligence committee. the fired fbi director is expected to tell senators about private conversations with mr. trump. the president can ask a judge to withhold information from those one on one disss
