Foreign powers can try to intervene in US presidential election: Intelligence Chief

# Headlines Government Strategy and Stories Tops World

US intelligence chief has said that foreign powers including Russia and China can try to intervene in the presidential election in 2020 in the country. National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said on Tuesday from the Senate Select Committee of Intelligence that election security for the intelligence community has always been prominent and will continue even further. This committee was hearing the estimates of Worldwide Hazards of 2019

During this, Dan Coats said, ‘Our assessment is that foreign forces will see the elections in the United States in 2020 as an opportunity to further their interests. We believe that they will refine their abilities and add new betting scales because they learn from each other’s experiences and efforts in the previous elections. ”

This statement of the Dan Coats before the Senate’s powerful committee is also important because in 2016 there are allegations of interfering in Russia in the US presidential election and investigations are also being conducted on a broad scale. Senator Angus King wanted to know if the intelligence system will tell the candidates that foreign powers are trying to influence the US elections? On this, the director of the FBI, Christopher Wray said, “We have prepared a clear protocol that we will try to find out that the information available to us is so dependable and actionable that the information should be given to the victim.”
