Intel Officials Worry Trump's Hysteria Over Voting Fraud May Become Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

US President Donald Trump continues to insist that mail-in voting threatens election security.

But according to CNN, US intelligence officials on Friday dismissed the idea that foreign powers would be able to interfere on a mass scale.

Specifically, they said in a briefing that foreign powers wouldn't be able to produce and send fake ballots to voters and election authorities.

The briefing highlighted the regular clash of views on election security between Trump and those charged with keeping the November vote secure.

The President is so vocal that they're worried he's laying the groundwork for the exact sort of foreign disinformation campaigns they warn about.

The only top cabinet official who has echoed Trump's concerns about the risks posed by mail-in voting is Attorney General William Barr.
