ABC News: Russia working to boost Trump's reelection and 'denigrate' Biden, as China undermines Trump: US intelligence

A top U.S. official released a statement Friday on foreign election meddling.

Three of America's top adversaries are actively meddling in U.S. presidential politics ahead of the November election, including efforts by Russia to advance President Donald Trump's reelection efforts, according to a public statement issued Friday by the U.S. intelligence community.

"We assess that Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia 'establishment,'" the statement said, adding that, "Some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump's candidacy on social media and Russian television."

All of these countries are adversaries of America. While America and it's "allies" have been divided on many issues over the last 20 years or so, Russia, China, Iran, and their allies have been incredibly unified. Essentially there's been "no daylight" between them on most issues and they all generally look to Russia for leadership. As such, there all trying to oust Trump.

I've learned generally not to trust US (un)intelligence on anything as a primary source. This "analysis" is no different. POTUS has been smart to question them. If there's a way to go around them entirely, I would strongly consider pursuing it.

Poster I'm not sure that the intelligence is so lacking as are the people who use the efforts of our intelligence community.
I present to you Lyndon Johnson/Vietnam and Bush junior in the mid east. Then the self-infatuated obamma didn't score well vs a vs ISIS with his premature pull-out from Iraq in 2014 despite warnings.

who warned Obama to pull out? the same people say here not to trust?
Postman continues to follow the Putin line and has never, not once, deviated in comments that support Russia, under the guise, here, of bad mouthing our intelligence. Our govt needs intelligence. If Trump does not trust it, he is after all the man in charge and can make changes. Perhaps Postman time for you to change. I suggest you know precious little about american intelligence other than what you are told to say via Russian handlers...and yes, now tell us about how you live in Texas etc etc etc

O'Brien said Sunday that U.S. officials are “aware of” the attacks and are “taking steps to counter it.”

“Whether it’s China, Russia or Iran, we’re not gonna put up with it,” he said. “And there will be severe consequences for any country that attempts to interfere with our free and fair elections.”

Lawmaker concerns are mounting over the 2020 election as it approaches, after U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russia had interfered with the 2016 election. Russian 2016 efforts included hacks that targeted infrastructure in all 50 states and the Democratic National Committee.

"Russian 2016 efforts included hacks that targeted infrastructure in all 50 states and the Democratic National Committee."

And Frederick keeps pushing Russian collusion. Most of us know that the transfer speeds were in excess of what is possible over the internet. The DNC was an inside job.

Frederick cannot tell us, who the two prostitutes that supposedly peed on the bed are or were. Nor can he tell us who changed their vote due to Facebook ads.
