(Worthy News) - Russia and other actors will attempt to interfere in the 2020 elections, U.S. intelligence agencies told Congress on Tuesday, saying such actors will use the tactics they deployed in the 2016 and 2018 campaigns.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Intelligence Committee that foreign actors see the upcoming elections as a chance for them to push for their interests by disrupting the process and dividing the electorate.

Coats said Russia and perhaps other countries such as China – which is increasingly aligned with Moscow – are likely to use social media other means to influence the 2020 U.S. presidential election. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]

  1. The U.S. has been interfering in WORLD politics for decades and now, all of a sudden, we're concerned that Russia is going to interfere in ours. The height of silliness.
