U.S. Offers $10 Million Reward for Election Interference Tips

The U.S. State Department said Wednesday it’s offering a $10 million reward for information on foreign cyber interference in American elections.

The bounty program came the same day the Department’s Global Engagement Center highlighted the threat of online disinformation from Russia in a report. The U.S. government has determined that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election by hacking and releasing emails meant to damage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
