'The United States is under attack': Intelligence chief Dan Coats says Putin targeting 2018 elections
[www.usatoday.com]
WASHINGTON — Russia and other adversaries will continue to engage in cyber warfare to "degrade our democratic values and weaken our alliances," the nation's top intelligence official said Tuesday. "Frankly, the United States is under attack," Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told the Senate Intelligence Committee, adding that every facet of society is being targeted with cyber intrusions.

In unequivocal language, Coats said Russia President Vladimir Putin has been emboldened by Russia's successful interference in the 2016 elections and is targeting the 2018 election cycle. "There should be no doubt that (Putin) views the past effort as successful," Coats said.

The national intelligence director's comments come against the backdrop of continuing congressional and criminal investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether the Kremlin coordinated their activities with President Trump's campaign.

Although Trump has repeatedly wavered on Russia's involvement, Coats and the nation's five other top intelligence officials Tuesday each affirmed a 2016 assessment of the entire intelligence community that Russia interfered in the election and has not relented in a strategy to undermine future elections. "This is not going to change or stop," National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers said.

It's so disappointing that useful idiots like Nunes are fighting the investigation of Russian influence. They are more interested in fundraising on 'Crooked Clinton' and purging voters then doing what's good for the country.
