General Says U.S. Lacks Unified Plan to Fight Russian Election Threat

The top U.S. general in Europe said that the U.S. government did not have an effective unified approach to deal with Russia’s cyber threat. U.S. officials have warned repeatedly that Russia is trying to interfere in the 2018 mid-term U.S. elections by hacking or using social media to spread propaganda and misleading reports, much as it did during the 2016 presidential race.
