Senate Intel Committee Demands Update From DNI on Midterm Election Meddling

Senators on the intelligence committee are demanding an update from Trump’s spy chief on any foreign meddling in the 2018 midterms. In a letter sent to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats on Feb. 15 and led by Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), the committee’s members asked for the full classified report Coats’ agency prepared about threats to the 2018 midterms. They also asked that Coats provide them an after-action report produced by the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security assessing any foreign meddling that occurred and how the government handled it. They called the contents of the reports “an important matter of national security.” —Betsy Woodruff
