China playing active role to interfere in US Elections: Trump Security adviser

Vastavam web: China has taken the most active role among countries seeking to interfere in the U.S. election and has the biggest programme to influence domestic politics, U.S. national security adviser Robert O’Brien said on Friday, without providing any details. He said China had “had the most massive programme to influence the United States politically,” followed by Iran and then Russia. U.S. intelligence found that Russia orchestrated a cyber campaign to sway the 2016 presidential election in Republican Donald Trump’s favour and there have been reports hackers may try to influence the election on Nov. 3.

“We’ve made it very clear to the Chinese, to the Russians, to the Iranians and others that haven’t been publicly disclosed that anyone … that attempts to interfere with the American elections will face extraordinary consequences,” O’Brien said.
