Secretary of State Mike Pompeo stated Wednesday the United States would provide a $10 million reward to arrest any state actor who interferes within the November elections.
US intelligence has stated that Russia interfered within the 2016 election to assist Donald Trump, particularly by way of manipulation of social media.
The United States “is offering a reward of up to $10 million for information leading to the identification or location of any person who, acting at the direction or under the control of a foreign government, interferes with US elections,” Pompeo informed reporters.
He didn’t specify Russia however US intelligence has beforehand stated it anticipated one other effort by Moscow in addition to different US adversaries.
Trump has scoffed on the US intelligence findings, notoriously at a joint information convention in 2018 showing to take President Vladimir Putin’s denials of election meddling at face worth.
