Contrary to numerous recent media reports, there is no evidence to suggest that Russia is making a specific “play” to boost President Trump’s reelection bid, a U.S. intelligence official told Fox News on Sunday.
In addition, top U.S. election official Shelby Pierson, who briefed Congress on Russian election interference efforts, may have overstated intelligence regarding the issue when speaking to the House Intelligence Committee earlier this month, the source added.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Wall Street Journal reported last week, citing people familiar with her work, that Pierson “has a reputation for being injudicious with her words and not appreciating the delicate work of corralling federal agencies, technology firms and state election officials to collaborate on election security.”
According to the report, Democrats pressed Pierson on whether Russia was trying to help Trump, and “accurate context or perspective to her responses failed to emerge.”
Fox News noted that CNN has since walked back their reporting on the claim that Russia is trying to help Trump’s re-election efforts.
Fox news anchor Chris Wallace got into a heated interview on Sunday with Marc Short, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence, over the controversial reports:
