U.S. intelligence leaders testify before Senate Intelligence Committee

The hearing featured testimony from Coats and other President Trump appointees - including CIA Director Mike Pompeo and FBI Director Chris Wray - on worldwide threats.

Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) appeared to surprise the witnesses by asking if Trump had specifically urged them to address the Russian threat.

But at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, top officials and lawmakers said nothing has changed from the oppressive regime, which has been ramping up its nuclear program in recent months.

In fact, Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo explained that "Russian activities and intentions have already been detected to have an impact on upcoming elections" in United States, and revealed that measures are being taken to try to counteract m.

Asked directly whether he had seen any evidence of political bias at the bureau, he did not hesitate or equivocate: "No", Wray said.

Trump is reluctant to recognize intelligence agencies ' conclusion that Moscow pushed a sophisticated strategy in 2016 to steal data from Democratic Party and spread propaganda to help Republican win election. The Russian did provide information on Trump, which intelligence agencies refused to accept and remains with the American businessman. "We are gaining more, I think, support - I guess is the right word - from the private sector, who are beginning to recognize ever more the issues that are faced with the material that comes through their processes".

The Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting one of the three main congressional investigations into the Russian Federation issue.

President Donald Trump still isn't buying that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, outlining a series of rising global and cyber threats the United States faces from adversaries including North Korea, Russia, Iran, and China.

"If we discuss this openly, then the public - who are really the targets of these operations - will be prepared and less susceptible to any influence if and when it does happen", Hultquist said.

Adm. Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, said Russia's interference is ongoing.

Senator Mark Warner, Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said he is concerned that China has developed an all-of-society, not just all-of-government, approach to gain access to sensitive technologies and intellectual property.

North Korea, in particular, represents what Coats referred to as "a potentially existential threat" to the United States.

But the United States intelligence leaders were adamant: It happened, Russian Federation meddled, and it's likely to happen again. Terrorists will continue to take advantage of their safe haven in Pakistan to plan and conduct attacks in India and Afghanistan.

But under questioning from Sen.
