U.S. intelligence says Russia seeking to boost Trump’s re-election bid

The U.S. intelligence community has assessed that Russia is actively seeking to boost President Trump’s candidacy ahead of the 2020 presidential election. In an unprecedented statement outlining the candidate preferences of several foreign actors, National Counterintelligence and Security Center director Bill Evanina also said China “prefers that President Trump – whom Beijing sees as unpredictable – does not win reelection,” and that Iran may try to “undermine” U.S. democratic institutions and the president, primarily through online and social media content. CBS News intelligence and national security reporter joins CBSN’s Lana Zak to talk about the NCSC warning and the Trump administration’s response.
