Top Officials Highlight Election Security

President Trump urges Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end Russia probe 'right now'

"Glad to see the White House finally do something about election security - even if it's only a press conference", Warner tweeted.

But while all five offered tough talk on Russia's meddling they offered few specifics on how it was being combated by their respective agencies. It is real. It is continuing.

"I fully share the intelligence community's assessments and past efforts and those today to interfere with our election and of the current threat".

'We continue to see a pervasive messaging campaign by Russian Federation to try to weaken and divide the United States, ' he noted.

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

National Security Adviser John Bolton, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen and the commander of the US Cyber Command, Gen. Paul M. Nakasone, attend a briefing at the White House on Thursday.

"We have an opportunity to use our voice in a very different way than those in Ukraine", Parkhomenko said.

President Donald Trump was strongly criticised last month for not condemning alleged Russian actions, while he was in Helsinki.

'I'm very concerned that Russian Federation will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election.

But Stewart listed several reasons why he still sees Trump as tougher on Russian Federation than was former President Barack Obama. Our President was standing next to Putin in Helsinki when he was asked did you want President Trump to win and did your officials help.

Donald Trump on Wednesday told his attorney general to end the high-profile investigation into Russian election meddling that has ensnared key members of his presidential campaign and cast a long shadow over his White House.

We know that through the decades Russian Federation "has used propaganda to sow discord in America". But they stepped up the game big-time in 2016. "Not a single vote was changed, so far as we can tell", he said.

He added that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was working closely with social media companies ahead of the mid-term elections.

Facebook Inc said on Tuesday it had uncovered a new coordinated political influence campaign to mislead its users and sow dissension among voters ahead of congressional elections.

That effort includes three pillars: 1) investigations and operations; 2) information and intelligence sharing, working with worldwide partners to combat threats; and 3) establish strong relationships with the private sector, providing actionable intelligence to technology companies, and meeting with top social media executives "so they can better monitor their own platforms".

'I do think progress is being made, ' Wray said. "And we were able to get the bill through the House, and hopefully, we'll have the same results in the Senate".

Trump also lamented the supposed poor treatment of Manafort, who was placed in solitary confinement, "although convicted of nothing", implying that he's being treated worse than Al Capone.

"Who is the president who said we are going to drive down the cost of energy and make the United States the most efficient oil exporter in the world...?" The ensemble delivered statements recognizing Russia's election-meddling activities while also insisting that the administration is taking action to stop it from happening again.
