Pakistan developing 'new types of nuclear weapons', claims American intelligence

Pompeo called the reporting "atrocious, ridiculous and inaccurate" and said the Central Intelligence Agency had not paid the Russian. According to the Intelligence Chief, more nuclear testing can be expected within the next year, regardless of seemingly warming relations with their neighbor and US ally, South Korea. The cyberweapons were never delivered.

Sometimes Trump and the White House accept the dangers the intelligence community says are facing American elections.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats prepares to deliver remarks, arguing for the renewal of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act at the Heritage Foundation, in Washington, D.C., on October 13, 2017.

FBI Director Christopher A. Wray also is appearing Tuesday morning at the hearing, where he is expected to field questions on security clearances for White House personnel and whether he remains confident in the independence of his agents.

"This is not going to change or stop", Admiral Michael Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, told the panel. I understand the president's sensitivity around [questions of] whether or not his campaign has any connection with the Russians.

"I would respectfully disagree", Risch said.

--This rather vague claim about social media use, which is not any sort of hacking, only emerged later after the initial claims of "Russian hacking" didn't really take.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates testified publicly before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday and cautioned that the United States is under attack.

Israel Launches Major Attack on "Iranian" Targets in Syria
With the downing of the first Israeli aircraft in over a decade, the rules of the game have changed on Israel's northern border. The sirens sounded in the Golan Heights are a result of Syrian anti-aircraft missiles, said the Israeli army in the statement.

Pompeo said the sanctions decision had to be viewed in a broader context: The United States is checking and deterring Russian Federation across the globe, he said, from sanctions on Moscow's ally Venezuela to military action in Syria and beyond.

Coats says that Russian Federation utilized social media as a relatively "cheap and low risk" opportunity to sow dissension in the U.S. He said in the eyes of Russian Federation, it "offers plausible deniability and is proven to be effective at sowing division".

A number of senators expressed concerns that China was seeking to use private companies with ties to its government to obtain sensitive US technology. "It is the finest group of professionals and public servants I could hope to work for, and every day, many times a day, I'm confronted with unbelievable examples of integrity, professionalism and grit", Wray said. The file was then closed in January but said earlier this month, the Federal Bureau of Investigation received "additional information" and passed that along to the proper agencies.

Trump is reluctant to recognize intelligence agencies ' conclusion that Moscow pushed a sophisticated strategy in 2016 to steal data from Democratic Party and spread propaganda to help Republican win election.

Trump's refusal to defend our elections - a blatant instance of disregarding his oath of office - comes in the face of multiple calls to secure our election machinery. He hasn't even tweeted a single concern.

Wray reiterated on Tuesday his concerns about a Republican-drafted memo that the president declassified earlier in February alleging surveillance abuses against a former Trump adviser.

Burr closed the hearing with an update on the committee's own Russian Federation investigation, promising to deliver a report and an open hearing on election security before this spring's primaries ahead of the November midterm elections.

Warner said he was also anxious about China-owned tech companies.
