Russian spy chiefs met in Washington with Central Intelligence Agency director to discuss counterterrorism

Russian spy chiefs met in Washington with Central Intelligence Agency director to discuss counterterrorism

On Thursday, Pompeo struck back in a letter of his own, telling Schumer that there was nothing "untoward" about United States and Russian intelligence officials meeting. We maintained contact in 2014 during the Sochi Olympics.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo said Russian Federation will target USA mid-term elections later this year as part of the Kremlin's attempt to influence domestic politics across the West, and warned the world had to do more to push back against Chinese meddling.

The meeting raised eyebrows for three reasons: It was announced by Russia's ambassador and reported on by the Soviet news agency TASS before it was reported by anyone in the us; the main attendee was supposed to be barred from the country; and current and former usa intelligence officials told the Post they can't remember so many Russian spy and security officials meeting with once.

Pompeo told Schumer that US intelligence officials meet periodically with their Russian counterparts to discuss various topics, including counterterrorism, aviation security and preventing foreign fighters from returning to both nations. Politics will be politics, but everyday work will be everyday work. "Which U.S. official did he meet with?" Sen.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo defended the meeting in a Thursday letter to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, declaring that he and other officials met with Russians for the same reason their predecessors did - "to keep Americans safe". "There are political slogans, but there is also some real work to do", Antonov added. At the time, Naryshkin was the chair of the Duma, Russia's parliament.

Naryshkin was appointed head of the SVR by Russian President Vladimir Putin in September, 2016.

"Russia hacked our elections".

Naryshkin, who was appointed by Russian President Vladimir Putin to head the SVR in September 2016, was sanctioned by the Obama administration in March 2014 as part of the USA response to Russia's annexation of Crimea.

Bloomberg reported last week that Dutch intelligence passed on crucial information about Russian interference in the election to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Last week, the Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant reported that the Netherlands intelligence concluded that some of the Russians running a hacking operation, known as "Cozy Bear", against Democratic organizations were SVR agents.

The Central Intelligence Agency director visited Moscow to meet Russian officials past year.

CIA Director Mike Pompeo was interviewed by the BBC on Monday and answered questions about Russia's possible interference in the 2018 midterm elections.

News of the meeting is likely to stoke controversy about the Trump administration's relationship with Russian Federation. "We deliver almost every day personally to the President the most exquisite truth that we know from the Central Intelligence Agency". Did any White House or National Security Council officials meet with Naryshkin? "What did they discuss?"

Asked about allowing Naryshkin entry to the US, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said, "I can tell you in a general matter if something is considered to be in the national security interest of the United States, just like other countries, we have the ability to waive that so that people can come into the United States".
