The head of the strategic communications department of the US national intelligence, Amanda Schoch, said that the publication of the report of the intelligence community on foreign interference in the 2020 elections, scheduled for December 18, has been postponed. This was reported in the official Twitter account of the department.
Schoch clarified that the special services have not yet completed work on the preparation of the report. According to Fox News, the reason for the postponement of the publication of the report may be a dispute between intelligence officials about the need to mention the alleged attempts by China to influence the course of the US elections.
Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that officials in the United States would cling to anything to report on Moscow's interference in their electoral process. He also confessed to being powerless over the statements of American politicians.
Russia has been repeatedly accused of interfering in the 2016 US elections. Local journalists and officials claimed that “Russian hackers” had stolen Democratic correspondence and published it on the Internet, and also tried to infiltrate the electronic counting system.
