Russian Federation will seek to meddle in the US presidential election again - this time, with China, claims Dan Coats, the US Director of National Intelligence.
"Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!" he said in a series of tweets.
Trump also said that when he became president two years ago, Islamic State "was out of control in Syria & running rampant". They are testing Rockets (last week) and more, and are coming very close to the edge. Mr. Trump and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker promoted the facility as evidence that they were helping bring back manufacturing to middle America and the U.S.
At the Senate hearing, Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel said Iran was "technically.in compliance" with the nuclear deal, despite the United States withdrawal and the imposition of stricter sanctions against Tehran.
In mid-December, however, as he announced he was withdrawing the 2,000 USA troops stationed in Syria, Trump declared, "We have won against ISIS", an acronym for Islamic State.
CIA Director Gina Haspel said "it is positive that we have managed to engage them in dialogue" but "ultimately the objective is to lessen that threat by getting them to declare that program and ultimately to dismantle that program".

Zeese explained that the foreign policy stance of the intelligence chiefs has been in place for decades, and that no matter how strongly a United States president may fight to change it, it stays put. He pointed to a halt in nuclear and missile tests by North Korea, the return of some USA service members' remains and the release of detained Americans as signs of progress.
Coats pointed out that Kim Jong-un's pledge in Singapore to pursue the "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula" - which Trump and Pompeo portrayed as a historic breakthrough - was no more than "a formulation linked to past demands that include an end to USA military deployments and exercises involving advanced U.S. capabilities".
In an interview with The Washington Times published Friday, Bolton said that it is when the US sees that denuclearization that the president can begin to take sanctions off.
Coats told the committee that Iran "is not now undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activities".
"Your refusal to accept the unanimous assessment of US Intelligence on Iran, North Korea, ISIS, Russia, and so much more shows the extent of your intellectual bankruptcy", Mr Brennan tweeted.
