CIA Director Mike Pompeo has said Russian Federation would target U.S. mid-term elections later this year as part of the Kremlin's attempt to influence domestic politics across the West, and also warned the world had to do more to push back against Chinese meddling.
Why is CIA Chief Mike Pompeo concerned about the Chinese influence on the West?
"We see it in our schools, in our hospitals and medical systems".
Mr. Pompeo then noted "think about the scale of the two economies, the Chinese have a much bigger footprint upon which to execute that mission than the Russians do".
Pompeo stood by the report, even as Trump has said he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin denials of such an effort. In addition, then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate hearing that the hacking was one part of a coordinated effort that "also entailed classical propaganda, disinformation, and fake news".
He observed: "We deliver almost every day personally to the president the most exquisite truth that we know from the Central Intelligence Agency".
The US spy chief said that the global community could collectively do more to combat Chinese efforts to exert power over the West.
Pompeo further informed that that the Chinese "have a much bigger footprint" than the Russians do, as an example he quoted the efforts to steal United States commercial information and infiltration of schools and hospitals.
