He said back-channel talks have been common in US diplomacy.

Kelly told Montana Sen. Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that President Trump had asked him to rebuild relations with Russian Federation. The report, which was published online by The Intercept, does not say whether the hacking had any effect on election results.

Russian hackers attacked at least one USA voting software supplier days before last year's presidential election, according to a government intelligence report leaked Monday that suggests election-related hacking penetrated further into US voting systems than previously known.

US intelligence agencies declined to comment.

The Justice Department has since charged federal government contractor, 25-year-old Reality Leigh Winner, with removing classified material from a government facility and leaking it to an unidentified news outlet.
