Elections 🗳 During a press briefing, a reporter asked National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien, “The U.S. government determined the Russians are trying to ‘undermine the faith in the electoral process by spreading disinformation about the accuracy of voter data by expanding vote by mail,’ and Pres. Trump has also said that state’s voter data is not accurate. And he’s telling people to not trust that their mail-in ballots are counted. So, is the president helping Russia spread disinformation?”
Nat’l Security Adviser O’Brien responded, “When it comes to the elections, and what the intelligence community has made clear, is first you have China – which has the most massive program to influence the United States politically – you have Iran, and you have Russia. These are all three adversary countries that are seeking to disrupt our elections.”
“Some of them prefer Biden. Some people say that some of them prefer the president. My position is that it doesn’t matter what these countries want, that any country that attempts to interfere with free and fair elections in the United States has to be stopped.”
