Russia interfering in USA 2020 presidential elections?
It has been stated that US President Donald Trump and Director of Intelligence John Ratcliffe are seeking to declassify a document that questions intelligence conclusions about Russian interference in USA 2020 presidential elections.
The agency stated that it had seen a letter dated October 15th, addressed by the Director of US National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, to the Inspector General for Intelligence Services. In it, he asserted that he wanted to declassify the document at the request of the Republican Chief in the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nune.
According to informed sources, the talk is about a secret document that questions the conclusions of the US intelligence issued in 2017. It says that Russia interfered in the US presidential elections in 2016 to help the election of Trump.
The sources indicated that the CIA and the National Security Agency are strongly opposed to publishing this document. They considered that this “will cause great harm to national security.” It will reveal the sources and methods of work.
A US official said that Ratcliffe was seeking to publish the document ahead of the debate between Donald Trump and his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, Thursday night.
It is noteworthy that Ratcliffe had faced criticism and accusations of “politicizing” the work of intelligence, by selectively declassifying various documents to benefit the Trump administration.
It is reported that Russia has repeatedly denied accusations against it of “interfering” in the US elections and confirmed that Washington did not provide any evidence to support such allegations.
