Russia is trying to destroy U.S. democracy with propaganda and disinformation, McMaster says
Russia aggressively tried to hobble U.S. democracy during the 2016 election, and is still working to destabilize parts of the world with propaganda, a top Trump adviser said Tuesday. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Russia's goal was not merely to undermine the election, but also our way of life. “I believe that Russia was engaged in a very sophisticated campaign of subversion to affect our confidence in democratic institutions, in democratic processes, including elections,” he said during an interview with the BBC.
