There is Russian interference in the 2020 election, likely not at the scale of 2016, since they’ve garnered numerous financial and political advantages from their many Congressional puppets. Remember when the NRA was a conduit for Russian election interference. Some senators have been suggesting that they might reveal classified information because they are shielded from repercussion.
The statement, which also indicated that Iran and China prefer a Trump loss in November, was hailed by Democrats as vindication of their strategy to lean on the administration for additional disclosures to help educate the public.
“Normally the customer of the intelligence community is the president, the national security apparatus, the secretary of Defense and members of Congress. But every four years, the customer should be the American people,” Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in an interview.
“They’re the decision-makers on Nov. 3. And they paid for this intelligence and they ought to be able to see it,” added King, who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate.
Whether Democrats succeed in their effort to wrest more information into the public domain could be critical to blunting Moscow’s latest interference effort, they say, as well as shielding Biden from the attacks that dogged Hillary Clinton in the final weeks of the 2016 campaign.

Know this: You can get an absentee ballot and you DO NOT have to mail it! Trump is crashing the post office as I type this as fast as he can to suppress votes. This IS voter suppression. I do believe every County in every state has a drop off box for your ballot. Please retweet.
