Global media is reporting that the US National Security claimed last month without evidence that China was the most active of the countries trying to interfere in the upcoming US elections. According to one report:
September 4, 2020 China has taken the most active role among countries seeking to interfere in the US election and has the biggest program to influence domestic politics, the US national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, said on Friday, without providing any details.“We know the Chinese have taken the most active role,” O’Brien told reporters at a briefing. He said China had “the most massive program to influence the United States politically” followed by Iran and then Russia. US intelligence found that Russia orchestrated a cyber campaign to sway the 2016 presidential election in Donald Trump’s favor and there have been reports hackers may try to influence the election on 3 November. Trump has long rejected that conclusion, and instead portrayed himself as a victim of election meddling – from Beijing.“We’ve made it very clear to the Chinese, to the Russians, to the Iranians and others that haven’t been publicly disclosed that anyone … that attempts to interfere with the American elections will face extraordinary consequences,” O’Brien said.

Based on what the GIOR has seen with respect to election interference, we judge this to be part of a Trump administration disinformation campaign and therefore is being categorized accordingly.
