Democrats and Republicans said Thursday that the FBI must reveal the names of the two Florida counties that were penetrated by hackers ahead of the 2016 election, saying voters were the victims and deserve to know.

House lawmakers from Florida were briefed by the FBI and told the two counties, but were prohibited from naming them publicly. The lawmakers said there were still other counties that said they were targets but weren’t hacked and the FBI wouldn’t reveal those names even in a classified setting with the members of Congress.

“This is unsustainable,” said Rep. Michael Waltz, Florida Republican.
