United States National Intelligence Director Dan Coats said that Russia, China and Iran tried to influence the opinion of voters in the mid-term elections in the United States in 2018.

"Russia and other foreign countries, including China and Iran, have carried out influence activities and a campaign to send messages regarding the United States to promote their strategic interests," the statement said.

But there are no intelligence reports that would indicate any hacking of the electoral infrastructure of the U.S., which could interfere with voting, change the vote count or violate the possibility of the vote counting.

It is noted that the intelligence will continue to work during future elections in 2020.

Also, U.S. President Donald Trump signed a decree imposing sanctions on foreign citizens or companies accused of interfering with U.S. elections. All the evidence of intervention will be based on the intelligence data.
