U.S. intelligence agencies say Russia, Iran were most involved in 2020 election interference
U.S. intelligence agencies have released a report claiming that Russia and Iran engaged in disinformation campaigns in order to interfere with the 2020 election. In the case of Russia, this involved attempting to denigrate Joe Biden by associating him and his family with questionable ties to Ukraine. The report also claimed that China did not directly participate in election interference, though a dissenting opinion in the report claims that China did take some steps to undermine President Trump’s reelection prospects.
