ccording to a report by ITAR on the 25th, the US President’s National Security Assistant Robert O’Brien pointed out in the White House that the US has imposed so many sanctions on Russia and Iran that the US government has actually not dealt with them. The two countries have room for new restrictions.
The reporter asked O’Brien that the US intelligence agencies alleged that Russia and Iran seemed to have obtained some information about the voter registration of the United States and were trying to influence the election.
“What kind of response measures will the United States take?” O’Brien replied, “One of the problems we face with regard to Iran and Russia is that we are now imposing too many sanctions on these two countries, so that we can hardly do anything against these two countries.
However, we are studying all possible containment measures that can be taken against these countries and other countries that try to influence Americans on election issues. This (influencing the US election) is unacceptable.”
O’Brien reiterated that the United States is considering “other options” in this regard. He also mentioned that the U.S. government has imposed restrictions on Russia and Iran in recent days, and repeated to U.S.
reporters his previous remarks in an interview with CBS, that American voters “defeated American foreign opponents. The “best way” is to “get out of the house and vote.”
Last week, US National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe claimed that Russia and Iran appear to have obtained some information about the registration of American voters in an attempt to influence the US presidential election. Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov denied all allegations that Moscow interfered in the US election.
According to the ITAR-Tass news agency, because the US government previously claimed that Russia interfered in the 2016 US election, it often mentioned the topic of Russia’s possible interference in the US election. Russia has denied such allegations more than once.
