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.
