Attorney General Barr says China poses a greater threat to elections than Russia
The head of the House Intelligence Committee on Sunday accused US Attorney General William Barr of lying when he said China posed a greater threat to the November US elections than Russia..
“This is just a false statement by the attorney general,” Democrat Adam Schiff told CNN. “Bill Barr simply misled the American people with his statement.”.
Barr, who was appointed attorney general by President Donald Trump last year, told CNN on Wednesday that China poses a greater threat than Russia in terms of alleged interference in the U.S. election..
“I saw intelligence. I came to this conclusion, “he said, without going into details..
Trump’s national security adviser Robert O’Brien made a similar statement on Friday, also without going into details..
When Schiff was asked if he believed Barr was lying, he replied, “In fact, yes. I hate to say this, but this is the reality. Obviously, Bill Barr is ready to do anything or say anything to help Donald Trump “.
Barr’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
Trump’s rival in the election, former Vice President Joe Biden, said on Friday that he disagrees that China poses the greatest threat to the election, and that such a conclusion is not consistent with the intelligence briefings being held for him..
Trump, who has long boasted of friendly relations with Chinese President Xi Jinping, turned his tough stance on China into a key element of his election campaign, accusing Biden of being soft on Beijing..
American intelligence has concluded that Russia has organized a cyber campaign to influence the course of the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trump. There have been reports that hackers may try to influence the elections on November 3 this year..
US counterintelligence chief William Evanina said in August that Russia, China and Iran would try to interfere in the elections..
According to him, Russia is already trying to thwart Biden and those whom it considers the anti-Russian “establishment” in the United States, while “subjects connected with the Kremlin” are trying to support Trump’s candidacy on social networks and through Russian television.
Evanina said his agency estimates China would prefer Trump not to win the election.
