Trump calls on USA attorney-general to end Russian Federation probe ‘disgrace’

Cartr Page insist he has done nothing illegal or unethical

Coats was among five top national security leaders - including 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 blasted Russian efforts to interfere in USA elections.

Russian Federation is trying to "weaken and divide" the United States ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, members of President Donald Trump's national security team said Thursday, pointing to efforts to combat election interference this fall.

"We will continue to monitor and warn of any such efforts".

USA national security chiefs have lined up to warn American democracy is in the "crosshairs" of foreign adversaries for elections in 2018 and 2020.

They, along with National Security Agency director Gen. Paul Nakasone and FBI Director Christopher Wray, appeared at the White House Thursday to try to reassure the American people they are doing everything in their power to address the threat.

He not only confirmed that Russia continues in attempts to meddle in USA elections, but also that this includes Russian individuals, the Kremlin, "and even add to that".

"This is not just an election cycle threat", Wray said.

The national security adviser, a longtime Russian Federation hawk, also defended the president's much-maligned press conference after his tête-à-tête with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, when Trump did not address Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has voiced skepticism about Russia's role in US election meddling, drawing accusations from Democrats and Republicans alike that he is ignoring a threat to American democracy.

Right before the briefing began, the White House released a letter Bolton sent to Senate Democrats about election interference.

The NSA director said his agency and US Cyber Command were "prepared to conduct operations against those actors attempting to undermine our nation's midterm elections".

"We know there are others who have the capability and may be considering influence activities", he said.

"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.

Wray said his agency is working with social media companies as part of their effort.

"He makes my job harder with some of his tweets and some of the things he said in that press conference are an example of that", Stewart said.

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

"Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign, one of the most successful in history, is a TOTAL HOAX", Trump tweeted Wednesday in the context of other tweets about Manafort.
