NSA Head Testifies Trump Failed to Order Action to Combat Russian Meddling”

The U.S. response to Russian meddling and disinformation campaigns has not been strong enough to deter Moscow's activities, a top intelligence official said Tuesday.

China is trying to rewrite norms that it perceives do not trend in its favour and showing worrying tendency to challenge the existing rules-based order from which it has been a major beneficiary, a top United States commander has said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the Department of Homeland Security was working with state and local elections officials to prevent attacks on electoral systems, which were wider than initially thought during the 2016 vote.

"We're focused on looking at a variety of different ways", Sanders said.

Rogers is the second senior intelligence official this month to warn that Russian interference continues and the Trump administration has failed to adequately combat the propaganda campaign.

Sen. Deb Fischer, R-Neb., a member of the committee, brought up the treatment of cyberthreats in the administration's National Defense Strategy and asked Rogers whether USA forces have the ability to deal with myriad threats.

Trump declared last week that "the facts" prove he's been tougher on Russian Federation than his predecessor, President Barack Obama but it is clear that is not the case - especially when it comes to punishing Russian Federation for interfering in U.S. elections.

"Everything, both as the director of NSA and what I see on the cyber command side, leads me to believe that if we don't change the dynamic here, this is going to continue and 2016 won't be viewed as something isolated". Jack Reed (D-R.I.), the ranking member, who accused the administration of "essentially sitting back and waiting".

Rogers' testimony was a reminder of the gap between the president, who has downplayed Russian interference, and his national security advisers, who have described it as an ongoing threat. But he said, "It's probably fair to say that we have not opted to engage in some of the same behaviors that we are seeing" from Russian Federation. He said that authority was held by Trump and Mattis.

Rogers said US sanctions and recent indictments of Russians have had some impact.

Asked why those efforts have not included explicit presidential authority for Rogers to do more, Sanders replied that "nobody is denying him the authority". But "it certainly hasn't generated the change in behavior that I think we all know we need", he said.

The U.S. government hasn't done enough to deter Russian Federation from using cyber and information operations to interfere again in American democracy, according to the head of the National Security Agency and U.S. Cyber Command.
