Three of the nation's top intelligence officials say the USA has seen Russian activity aimed at meddling in the upcoming midterm elections.

In fact, Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo explained that "Russian activities and intentions have already been detected to have an impact on upcoming elections" in United States, and revealed that measures are being taken to try to counteract m.

Robert Cardillo, director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, said government and industry needed to "lock arms" and cooperate, but that he was optimistic that would happen.

Rogers and FBI Director Christopher Wray and said they, for example, are helping to brief state and local elections officials about the potential dangers from cyberattacks. They didn't describe the activity, other than to say it's related to information warfare.

These new types of nuclear weapons will introduce new risks for escalation of dynamics and security in the region, Coats said, reflecting on the risks involved in developing such types of nuclear weapons. While they have historically tried to do these types of things, clearly in 2016 they upped their game. "I encourage our people not to get too caught up on what I consider the noise on TV and on social media", he said.

"There is no indication there is any strategic change in the outlook for Kim Jong Un in his desire to retain his nuclear capacity to threaten the United States of America, no change there", he said.

But President Trump has repeatedly refused to accept the conclusion that Russia's interference tipped the scales in his favor, even as three separate investigations into his campaign's contacts with Russian Federation - and possible collusion with the Kremlin - continue.

King implored Trump to combat the Russian threat, suggesting interim reports between government agencies.

Coats added that Americans need to be vocal about resisting Russian operations to influence American politics and the social fabric of the country. "But we still do not have a plan", the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee said in his opening statement. But the latest testimony actually confirmed that it is occurring.

Also, the reports are suggesting that the United States chief said, Pakistan's perception of its eroding position relative to India, reinforced by endemic economic weakness and domestic security issues, nearly certainly will exacerbate long-held fears of isolation and drive Islamabad's pursuit of actions that run counter to U.S. goals for the region.

Nine months after a new election in United States, intelligence services warned on Tuesday that threat of Russian interference has grown. He criticized Trump for not issuing more sanctions against Russian Federation in response to the meddling.

"No single agency is, quote, in charge", he said. "Iran will try to penetrate US and allied networks for espionage and lay the groundwork for future cyberattacks", he added.

Sen. James Risch, R-Idaho, said he thinks the American people are better prepared to deal with Russian influence campaigns in the upcoming midterms and beyond.
