Trump advisor asserts seeing no intel of Russia meddling

"American voters should decide American elections, not Vladimir Putin", U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote in a post on Twitter late on Thursday, referring to Russia's president.

The Post then reported Friday that Trump and the Sanders campaign were briefed on Russia's efforts to help them.

Since it was first revealed that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election, USA intelligence officials have repeatedly warned about ongoing threats by Russian Federation to interfere in American elections, including the in 2020 presidential race.

At a campaign rally in Las Vegas on Friday, Trump said Democrats were promulgating "a rumor" that Russian Federation sought his re-election.

He also said he would be willing to meet with the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, as President Donald Trump has done.

"It's disinformation. That's the only thing they're good at, they're not good at anything else". They get nothing done.

SIMON: We're joined by NPR's Pam Fessler, who covers election security. "Otherwise, the Russians continue to have too much influence over our campaign and this is how we fight against that".

PAM FESSLER, BYLINE: Good morning.

Vox reported past year that Bezos asked fellow billionaire Michael Bloomberg if he would run for president, several months before Bloomberg announced his candidacy.

"In 2016, Russian Federation used internet propaganda to sow division in our country, and my understanding is that they are doing it again in 2020", Sanders said in the statement. Indeed, there are two or three reasons I fear those numbers will not hold up - one being that Sanders has simply never faced a concerted negative campaign. We don't know what the intelligence looks like.

FESSLER: Exactly, which, of course, is what Russia's main goal is - to create confusion with our elections.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said her campaign has not received a briefing from intelligence officials, while billionaire philanthropist Tom Steyer's campaign said it was briefed "months ago" but didn't give any details. They also did in 2016 in an effort to stop Hillary Clinton from getting elected.

Here's the message to Russia: "Stay out of American elections".

Trump, speaking Friday at a rally in Las Vegas, dismissed as "disinformation" new claims of Russian interference in the USA campaign.

The interview came on the heels of recent reports that the Office of the Director of National Intelligence told lawmakers that Russian Federation is meddling in the 2020 race, with a preference for the Trump campaign. And he dismissed it as a hoax, and after the briefing, he replaced his acting director of national intelligence with another acting director.

FESSLER: Well, it definitely doesn't help. He said, "I will stand firmly against his efforts and any other foreign power".

O'Brien claimed he had not seen any intelligence or analyses indicating that Russian Federation was aiding Trump and neither had top leaders in the intelligence agencies.

The form that the Russian assistance had taken was not clear, the paper added. After all, President Trump is still apparently the candidate the Kremlin hopes wins, and Sanders and Trump certainly have different ideological stances.

SIMON: From what you've learned, Pam, what kind of threats are intelligence officials most anxious about? "The intelligence community is telling us they are interfering in this campaign right now in 2020".

Talking to reporters as he left the White Household for a trip to India, Trump claimed he had not been briefed on intelligence that Russian Federation was aiming to strengthen the marketing campaign of Sanders, a US senator from Vermont, and he called for a probe into Schiff for the leak.
