Wray also provided a fresh look at how Russian Federation and other countries go after the United States' integrity, saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation has uncovered foreign influence operations that include "targeting US officials and other USA persons through traditional intelligence tradecraft, criminal efforts to suppress voting and provide illegal campaign financing, cyber attacks against voting infrastructure along with computer intrusions targeting elected officials and others", as well as "both overtly and covertly manipulating news stories, spreading disinformation, leveraging economic resources and escalating divisive issues". They are also reinforcing sanctions.

Russian Federation is behind a "pervasive messaging campaign" to undermine the November congressional elections and the 2020 presidential election, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Thursday, vowing the Trump administration will "continue to monitor and warn of any such efforts".

"Russia is going to continue to do this".

Coats said the Russian meddling effort reached into the Kremlin itself.

"I said, 'I don't think they care".

An infection from a dog lick cost a man his limbs
Although many people may not show any symptoms of the infection, those with compromised immune systems can face severe illness. A Wisconsin man had to have all his limbs amputated after he contracted a severe infection, likely from a dog lick.

"This is about exploiting the fault lines that exist in our society and building on what was done in 2016, and it isn't confined to the internet - it includes print and television, as well, in some cases using existing platforms that predate the 2016 election", the official said.

Their rare appearance during a White House briefing came as a display of resolve, weeks after Trump publicly undermined the conclusions of American intelligence agencies regarding Russian interference.

The Director said they "subsequently made the determination to make this a top priority, that it doesn't happen again". "That was the easy part", but he said the tougher part is recognizing efforts in social media to create division. "How do you monitor those?" he said. By the way, that's a good thing, not a bad thing.

"The umbrella is Putin and Russia", Parkhomenko said.

Democrat Shireen Ghorbani - Stewart's challenger in the 2nd Congressional District, who was a Peace Corps volunteer in the former Soviet republic of Moldova - criticized his comments. "Russians are trying to help Democrats in the 2018 elections". This president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community.

When asked at the summit if he preferred a Trump victory in 2016, Putin responded: "Yes, I did".
