Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said Sunday the intelligence community has to “lay out more of the facts” to Americans about Russian interference in the upcoming election.
In an interview on NBC News’ “Meet The Press,” Warner, the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said a report has laid out the case.
“The intelligence community, 10 days ago, said the Russians are back trying to interfere in our elections again, that they have a disinformation, misinformation campaign targeted against…[Joe] Biden,” he said.
“It’s incumbent on the intelligence community to lay out more of the facts of what we know about that disinformation campaign. My fear is there may be Americans that are unwittingly promoting that Russian disinformation campaign and I think they need to be briefed so they don’t become, frankly, agents in effect of this disinformation campaign.”
According to Warner, a bipartisan report showed “unprecedented contacts between Russians and folks on the Trump campaign.”
Warner also called on Trump to disavow the conspiracy theory movement QAnon, calling it a “fringe group” that presents a potential “threat.”
“The idea that the president of the United States is embracing these folks and say just because they like him and they love our country is very bizarre,” he said.
“These guys are whack jobs, and the president ought to disavow them,” he said.
