U.S. Officials Accuse Iran and Russia of Seeking to Influence Election

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray accused Iran and Russia Wednesday of obtaining voter data in an attempt to influence the U.S. presidential election. In a news conference, the officials accused Iran of being behind emails sent to Democrat voters in battleground states that appear to be intimidating them to vote for President Donald Trump. Both Iran and Russia have obtained voter identification information, though such data is publicly accessible. These efforts, according to officials, are meant to undermine American's confidence in election results.
