Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: Russia is already trying to interfere in our midterm congressional elections


What we are seeing is the resurgence of “great” powers in the long wake of The Cold War. The EU is asserting itself. Russia is asserting itself. China is asserting itself. One has to assume that shady things are going on on nearly all fronts with these (perceived) rivals.

“I think it’s important we just continue to say to Russia, ‘Look, you think we don’t see what you’re doing. We do see it and you need to stop. If you don’t, you’re going to just continue to invite consequences for yourself,'” Tillerson told Fox.

The secretary of State’s warnings follow similar statements from CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who told BBC News that he expects Russia to target this year’s midterm elections.

“I have every expectation that they will continue to try and do that, but I’m confident that America will be able to have a free and fair election (and) that we will push back in a way that is sufficiently robust that the impact they have on our election won’t be great,” Pompeo told the BBC.

And again, I am sure it’s not JUST Russia that is playing this game.
