Russia wants Trump in 2020; China and Iran do not

William Evanina, director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, provided new information about what U.S. intelligence analysts have determined regarding the election interference goals of China, Russia and Iran.

Evanina said the Russians, in a reprise of the 2016 presidential election, were once again trying to help Trump by sabotaging his opponent.

“We assess that Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia ‘establishment,’” Evanina said, adding that a pro-Russia Ukrainian parliamentarian, Andriy Derkach “is spreading claims about corruption – including through publicizing leaked phone calls – to undermine former Vice President Biden’s candidacy and the Democratic Party.”

Evanina added that “some Kremlin-linked actors are also seeking to boost President Trump’s candidacy on social media and Russian television.”
