Intel officials say Iran, Russia seeking to influence election

 

October 22, 2020



Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe warned Wednesday that Russia and Iran are behind efforts to sway public opinions related to the 2020 presidential election.

“We have identified that two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections,” Ratcliffe said an abruptly scheduled press conference on election security threats.

In particular, Ratcliffe said Iran is behind sending spoofed emails that aim to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President Trump. He also said it is behind circulating other content such as a video that appears to encourage individuals to fraudulently cast ballots, even from overseas.
