Mike Pompeo, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) thinks that Russia can interfere in the mid-term election to the US Congress in November 2018 as BBC reported.
‘I definitely expect that they (Russians) will continue the attempts to do it (influence the election in the US). But I am sure that the US is able holding a free and honest election and we will resist quite successfully and the Russian influence on our election will not be significant’, Pompeo said.
The mid-term election to the Congress will take place in the US on November 6, 2018. The citizens of the country will re-elect all 435 members of the House of the Representatives and 33 out of 100 American senators. Moreover, the municipal and gubernatorial elections will take place in the majority of the states.
At the moment the investigation of the possible interference of Russia in the 2016 US election takes place. Earlier Google and Twitter did not find the evidence of the influence of Russia on the regional elections in the US in 2017.
