Nakasone, who is also the commander of the U.S. Cyber Command, said the command and the NSA are both tracking a wide range of foreign cyber adversaries and "are prepared to conduct operations against those actors attempting to undermine our nation's midterm elections".

Coats was one of five top national security leaders - the others were National Security Adviser John Bolton; FBI Director Christopher Wray; Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen; and General Paul Nakasone, director of the National Security Agency - who condemned Russian efforts to interfere in United States elections at the briefing.

Five Senate Dems also sent a letter to Bolton expressing concerns about election security; he sent a letter in response assuring them that "extensive, historic actions" had already been taken "to ensure the integrity of our elections and to defend against foreign malign influence". "We're not going to accept meddling in the elections", Nakasone said.

"We continue to see a pervasive campaign by Russian Federation to try to weaken and divide the United States".

The US government on Thursday (Aug 2) accused Russian Federation of carrying out a "pervasive" campaign to influence public opinion and elections, in a warning just months before crucial legislative polls.

Wray told reporters that compared to 2016, in 2018, "We are not yet seeing the same kind of efforts to specifically target election infrastructure", but that other efforts to influence public opinion continue.

'We know that through decades Russian Federation has tried to use the propaganda to sow discord in America.

Perdue said the programs are a short-term solution giving President Trump time to work out long-term trade deals in the future. They are not there to offset bad policy. "No weakness!" Trump wrote. "Negotiations are going really well, be cool.

It inspired another national round of hand-wringing over malign Russia influence and intentions in the US, but the recent Helsinki summit between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin has actually boosted America's image in Mr. Putin's Russia.

The illegal activity includes criminal efforts to suppress voting and provide illegal campaign financing, cyber attacks against voting infrastructure along with computer intrusions targeting elected officials and others, USA officials said.

Trump has taken "decisive actions to heighten the security" of our election systems, Bolton said.

"This includes measures to heighten the security and resilience of election systems and processes, to confront Russian and other foreign malign influence in the United States, to confront such aggression through global action, and to reinforce a strong sanctions regime".

Both Russia's President Vladimir Putin and China's President Xi Jinping want to weaken the US, and Xi has a plan to make his country the "not a peer to the United States but the single dominant power in the world" by 2048, the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party in China, the Utah Republican said.

Aides rushed to limit the damage, insisting he was not issuing an order as Mr Session's boss.

The tweet and a half-dozen others, they said, were prompted by Trump's rage after learning that Mueller wanted to question him about potential obstruction of justice.
