DNI Coats on Russian Interference with U.S. and European Elections

The Hon. Daniel Coats, Director of National Intelligence, will be the opening keynote at the 8th Annual Billington CyberSecurity Summit, Sept. 13, Washington, D.C.

Daniel Coats, Director of National Intelligence, speaking at the Aspen Security Forum last month, confirmed once again that Russia interfered in the U.S. election, as well as with European elections.

“They’ve done it to the French. They did it to the Brits. The Germans are now encountering that in their elections coming up in September. The president of Montenegro, I was sitting with him at a luncheon, and he said, ‘The Russians are messing with us.’  They’re trying to undermine democracy.  They are doing it, not just with us, but with nations that fall within the democratic process across the world,” Coats said.
