The Head of the CIA Mike Pompeo says that Russia has been trying to undermine U.S. elections for decades, as Reuters reports.

According to him, the next time meddling in the U.S. affairs is expected in November 2018, during the election to the Congress, where Republicans will be trying to keep their majority. Pompeo also noted that it’s not only Russia who’s trying to undermine the American elections.

“Yes, I continue to be concerned, not only about the Russians but about others’ efforts as well,” Pompeo said, without giving details. “We have many foes who want to undermine Western democracy.”

It’s worth pointing out that on Dec. 13, Donald Trump Jr. testified in the Senate on the probable Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Moscow denies any meddling in the 2016 elections to help Republican Trump win. The U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether any crimes were committed.
