DNI John Ratcliffe says IRAN is responsible for fake ‘Proud Boys’ emails threatening Democrats in an effort to ‘damage Trump’ – and the FBI says Russia is interfering in voter registration, Daily Mail reports.

US intelligence officials have confirmed Iran is responsible for a series of threatening emails targeting Democratic voters this week, as they revealed Russia is also playing its part to meddle in the presidential election. 

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Wednesday identified the two countries as foreign actors that ‘have taken specific actions to influence public opinion’ relating to the presidential race. 

Ratcliffe said both countries separately managed to obtain voter registration information – most of which is easily accessible – to target Americans in an attempt to sway the outcome of the election.
