Intelligence agencies see no sign midterms were compromised by foreign actors

Washington (CNN)The intelligence community has not found any indication that US election infrastructure was compromised during this year’s midterm elections, but countries like Russia, China and Iran continued to target the US with influence and messaging campaigns meant to further their strategic interests, the director of national intelligence said Friday.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats submitted the intelligence community’s report on foreign interference in the midterms to President Donald Trump and relevant departments and agencies on Friday. In a statement, he noted the report was mandated by Executive Order.
“At this time, the Intelligence Community does not have intelligence reporting that indicates any compromise of our nation’s election infrastructure that would have prevented voting, changed vote counts, or disrupted the ability to tally votes,” Coats said in the statement.
