Director of National Security John Ratcliffe and FBI Director Christopher Wray held a rather abrupt press conference on Wednesday evening to alert the American people about attempted election interference just 13 days away from Election Day.


"Two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections," Ratcliffe explained. "First, we have confirmed that some voter registration information has been obtained by Iran and separately by Russia."

Ratcliffe said foreign adversaries can use the information to disrupt our election. Specifically, Iran has sent spoofed emails designed to "intimidate voters, create social unrest, and hurt President Trump." They have also sent around a fraudulent video saying people in other countries can partake in American elections, something that is not true.
