The Department of Homeland Security intelligence branch warns federal and state authorities that it knows with “high confidence” that Russian actors are amplifying disinformation about universal mail-in voting.
The bulletin comes just one day after an ABC News report that DHS secretly blocked a July intelligence bulletin about a Russian smear campaign against Joe Biden. Both bulletins track the Russian influence campaign to events beginning in March.
Donald Trump first attacked mail-in voting as “massive fraud and abuse” and “the end of our great Republican party” in early April, less than a month after Russian agents published the same conspiracy.
Attorney General William Barr is also actively fear mongering about mail-in voting, despite telling Congress that he has no evidence to support his claims.
