Attorney General Muller: 'Russia continues to interfere in the elections'
Moreover, the experience of the Russian Federation is now seeking to take over other countries, Muller said at a hearing in the intelligence committee of the House of Representatives, the own correspondent reports Ukrinform.
“This was not an isolated attempt. They keep interfering while we're sitting here. And they are going to do it in the next election campaign (in the US presidential elections in 2020 - ed.), ”Robert Mueller answered to the question of Republican Senator Will Heard.
In this regard, Muller called, in particular, to “aggressively and as soon as possible” adopt new legislation that would help the FBI, CIA and the NSA to work coherently to counteract Russian interference.
He agreed with the senator on the need to provide a legal mechanism so that intelligence agencies could quickly warn candidates that they were subject to Russian "active measures."
“Moreover, we must take into account that now many other countries are working on their capabilities to repeat what the Russians have done,” Mueller cautioned.
Recall speaking July 24 in the law enforcement committee of the House of Representatives of the US Congress, Muller said that during his career, he had seen many attempts to attack American democracy, and Russian interference in the election of 2016 was "one of the most serious."
The investigation of US Special Prosecutor Robert Muller regarding possible ties and collusion between Donald Trump’s campaigners and Russia lasted from June 2017 to March 2019.
Based on its results, a more than 400-page report was prepared, which points to the "systematic and large-scale" Russian intervention in the US electoral process in 2016.
At the same time, the report’s findings state that Trump’s collusion with the Russians was not found sufficient to bring the charges. However, prosecutors did not rule out that the US president tried to obstruct justice during the investigation.
