Iran used the guise of the far-right Proud Boys to send threatening emails to voters earlier this week, the FBI said on Wednesday evening.
In a hastily-called evening press conference, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe bombshelled concerted efforts to wreak havoc in the upcoming vote.
“We have already seen Iran send spoofed emails intended to intimidate voters, incite unrest and harm President Trump,” Ratcliffe said, adding that Iran “is also distributing other content” to imply fraud electoral.
“Although we have not seen the same actions from Russia, we know that they have obtained information on voter registration,” he said.
“If you receive an intimidating or manipulative email in your inbox, don’t worry and don’t broadcast it,” Ratcliffe said.
