Joe Biden says he is “not surprised at all” by reports that the intelligence community has warned of Russian meddling in the 2020 election to help Donald Trump.

At a CNN town hall Wednesday night, Biden said that he knew there was foreign meddling in elections while he was vice president, and “I guarantee you (Russians) are involved” in the current election. Biden also said he suspected whoever briefed Congress on the interference “is about to be fired.”

He added that “I guarantee you” other foreign actors are interfering and said he’d stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin, pledging to make sure “there’s consequences for his actions — economic consequences.”

Biden also panned Trump’s pick for director of national intelligence, Richard Grenell, who is currently the ambassador to Germany. “He has absolutely zero experience in intelligence,” he said.

On an unrelated note, ahead of Saturday's caucuses in Nevada, Biden picked up the picked up the endorsement of a prominent progressive Hispanic organization.

The Latino Victory Fund announced Thursday that it was endorsing Biden. The group had endorsed former Obama administration housing chief Julián Castro in August, but he left the presidential race last month.

It timed its announcement to impact both Nevada and many of the Hispanic-heavy states voting on “Super Tuesday” on March 3.

Biden is looking to rebound in Nevada after disappointing finishes in Iowa and New Hampshire.
