Iran has biggest arsenal of ballistic missiles in region - US National Intelligence

The report predicted Russian intelligence agencies will disseminate more false information over Russian state-controlled media and through fake online personas to spread anti-American views and exacerbate social and political divides in the United States.

"I am sick and exhausted of going to these hearings which I have been going to for five years where everybody talks about cyber attacks, and our country still does not have a policy or a doctrine or a strategy for dealing with them", King said. The other chiefs echoed this comment, though Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo - a close ally of the president - said it is taking steps to block Russian efforts. But he did not say that Trump has specifically directed the agency to prevent Russian interference.

The bureau is under fire from President Trump and his GOP allies for its handling of investigations related to Russian meddling in the 2016 election and Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server. Nor has Trump pressed for any interagency effort to combat Russian interference, Coats conceded. "We have no doctrine of deterrence", King said.

On Feb. 13, the chief officers of top USA intelligence agencies presented a report on global threats to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

The officials said they agreed with a January 2017 assessment by the US intelligence community that Russian Federation tried to influence the 2016 USA presidential election.

"There should be no doubt that Russia perceived its past efforts as successful and views the 2018 midterm elections as a potential target for Russian influence operations", Coats told the committee.

James Risch (R-Idaho), a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. FBI Director Wray confirmed to Senator Heinrich that the FBI has grave concerns with the accuracy of the Republican memo authored by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and pushed back on claims of inherent political bias at the FBI.

"We can't fully police social media", said FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Sen. Roy Blunt focused his questions most directly on election infrastructure. Tom Cotton if they would recommend using Chinese software, the intelligence chiefs all indicated that they would not recommend using the Chinese products.

As per the Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats reports, the attack could follow the previous attack where Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists struck the Sunjuwan Military Camp in Jammu on Saturday, killing seven people including six soldiers and one civilian. "That's something we can discuss more in a closed setting", he said.
