The U.S. government on Wednesday publicly accused Russia and Iran of separately interfering in the 2020 election, using information they each obtained on American voters.

Moscow, authorities said, obtained voter information just as they had during the 2016 election.

Authorities did not detail what Russia has allegedly done to influence Americans’ votes.

Ratcliffe, who was chosen by President Trump to oversee the nation’s intelligence agencies, said Iran’s activity was designed to hurt Trump.
