At a press conference on election security, U.S. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe announced that “some voter registration has been obtained by Iran”, adding that Iran had been “sending spoofed emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President Trump”. Tehran denied what it described as “fabricated, amateurish and deceitful reports from the U.S. regime’s officials”, also underscoring that “Iran has no interest in interfering in the U.S. election and no preference for the outcome”.
