CIA Director: Russia decades to undermine American democracy

Radio Liberty 25.06.2017 at 10:14

Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty is a private, non-profit information service funded by the U.S. Congress, broadcasting to the countries of Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia and Middle East and Russia.

The Director of the CIA Mike Pompeo said that reports of Russian interference in American elections – is not particularly original. In interview to TV channel EN-bi-si Pompeo said: "In the American intelligence community said that in these elections the Russians intervened, but it is, frankly, not particularly original, –noting: – They have been doing it for a very long time and decades trying to undermine American democracy." Report on the intervention of Russia should not surprise anyone, Pompeo said in an interview. "So this is nothing new, but it certainly increases the need for attention to our ability to determine how to stop them", he added. The CIA Director said he could not confirm the message of the Washington Post that his Agency has confirmed the personal intervention of the President of Russia Vladimir Putin in the elections in 2016. Pompeo noted that such attack has become commonplace for Russia. Earlier, U.S. President Donald trump has repeatedly refused to confirm that Russia was a multi-level campaign, which is damaging to presidential elections in the United States, despite the consensus of American intelligence agencies including the CIA that such interference took place.
