Moscow poses threat to 2018 elections too

House Republicans have said in a recently released memo that political bias at the Federal Bureau of Investigation led to the use of Democratic Party-funded material in an application for a surveillance warrant on a former Trump campaign adviser; the release of a rebuttal memo by Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee has so far been blocked by the White House, citing the need to remove classified information from it.

- The top USA intelligence chiefs told lawmakers that they have seen signs of Russian meddling in the upcoming midterm elections.

Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, agreed.

Russian operatives continue to publish fake news stories, spread misinformation on social media and sow discord - because it's working.

In same line, Coats warned: "We hope that Russian Federation will continue to use propaganda, false people, simpat├ęticos spokesmen and or means of influence to try to exacerbate social and political fissures in U.S.".

Three of the nation's top intelligence officials confirmed Tuesday that they have seen evidence of Russian meddling in the upcoming midterm elections - part of what they say is Moscow's escalating cyber assault on American and European democracies.

Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo also attended the hearing.

Jack Reed, D-R.I., to press officials on whether Trump has directed them to take "specific actions to confront and to blunt" Russian interference activities.

"We think it's very likely because we don't see a let up in efforts to do this", Coats told the AP. "I'm happy to talk about it in closed session".

Senators asked the intelligence chiefs during the hearing whether there was a plan in place to combat more hacking.

He did not, however, explain what steps the USA might take, noting only that "many things are possible".

Coats said the USA must craft responses to minimize attacks.

"It's true - it's important that the adversary knows", Pompeo said.

-Shiite terrorists will attack American targets in Iraq because they believe the USA security presence is no longer needed and support Iran's aim to reduce US influence in Iraq.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Russian Federation has determined that cyber operations to disrupt the 2016 presidential campaign was "successful", and this year's midterms is the next likely target.

And the nuclear threat from North Korea is especially dire. He offered to describe that analysis only in a closed, classified session. Any evidence to the contrary, to Trump, seems to represent an attempt to delegitimize his presidency-and his hurt feelings are evidently more important than new evidence that Russian Federation is poised to strike again.
