Coats told reporters that the intelligence community "continues to be concerned about the threats of upcoming US elections, both the midterms and the presidential elections of 2020".

He added that agencies were meeting weekly to focus on election security ahead of the mid-term elections in November when most of the US Congress faces the voters.

"We continue to see a pervasive messaging campaign by Russian Federation to try to weaken and divide the United States", Coats said at a White House briefing with other intelligence agency leaders.

'I do think progress is being made, ' Wray said. "And we were able to get the bill through the House, and hopefully, we'll have the same results in the Senate".

One reporter questioned whether US President Donald Trump had adequately challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin on the matter at their bilateral summit in Finland last month.

Amid the criticism from both sides of the political aisle, Mr Trump's personal attorneys also sought to walk back the comment, insisting the president was not ordering Sessions to do anything.

The White House has been focusing its criminal justice reform efforts on improving re-entry, rehabilitation and workforce training programs, instead of sentencing reform. State and county officials have complained, however, that they lack money and time to make voting systems more secure.

"Whatever happens, we want to assure Americans their vote was counted and counted correctly", Nielsen said.

"This is about exploiting the fault lines that exist in our society and building on what was done in 2016, and it isn't confined to the internet - it includes print and television, as well, in some cases using existing platforms that predate the 2016 election", the official said.
