Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Coats pointed to the North Korean regime developing nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles, building up its conventional weapons, and threatening USA allies as evidence that Pyongyang is growing more unsafe.
"I encourage our folks not to get too hung up on what I consider to be the noise on TV and social media", Wray said. These tactics mark a continuation of Russia's broader strategy of disruption, one Moscow views as having succeeded in 2016, Coats observed.
"This is not going to change or stop", National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers said at the hearing. Action of the kind Pompeo described is just the beginning of what Sen.
Democrats on the panel are working to release a rebuttal to the GOP memo, but they ran into resistance from the president and Justice Department officials who said it included sensitive national security information.
"Despite all of this, the President inconceivably continues to deny the threat posed by Russia", Warner continued. The administration condemned foreign interference past year when Trump signed a bill mandating new sanctions on Russian Federation as punishment for the 2016 active measures.

Cyber attacks against the US are happening every day, says National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.
Weapons of mass destruction is No. 2 on Coats' list of threats. Kim Jong Un's regime has repeatedly made it clear that they are unwilling to negotiate an end to their nuclear pursuits, and the United States has made it equally clear that they will not tolerate a nuclear threat in the form of North Korea.
Mr Coats warned that North Korea's expansion of its military arsenal - both its burgeoning stock of ballistic missiles and nuclear warheads and its "longstanding" chemical and biological weapons initiatives - would "constitute a major threat to the United States and to our allies".
"We expect Russian Federation to continue using propaganda, social media, false-flag personas, sympathetic spokespeople, and other means of influence to try to exacerbate social and political fissures in the United States", Coats said.
"We need to inform the American public that this is real". Wray said that while there was a limit to what he can say about the content of Porter's background investigation, he said he was confident the FBI followed "established protocols" when conducting the background investigation.

Porter had been serving with an interim security clearance while his background check was pending, the White House said.
Cybersecurity is far from the only threat on Coats' radar, however.
The committee's Democratic vice chairman faulted the Trump administration for not preparing for potential Russian interference in the 2018 elections. The secretary announced $200 million in American aid to stabilize communities devastated by war so their residents can return home.
Iran will remain the most prominent state sponsor of terrorism and an adversary in the Middle East, especially in Iraq, Syria and Yemen, Coats said.
Elections systems are also only part of the problem. Iraq requires a minimum of $88 billion to restore essential services.
