Homeland Security sitting on intelligence finding of Russian disinformation on Biden mental health: reportThe Department of Homeland Security chose not to release an intelligence bulletin in July that concluded Russian state actors were engaged in a disinformation campaign aimed at persuading impressionable U.S. voters that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is suffering a decline in mental health, . Citing its review of a draft of the document and internal emails, the network news outlet says the intelligence findings were cued up for distribution on July 9 to federal, state and local law-enforcement partners. The department's legislative and public affairs office had received the document for review two days before, ABC reports. The report's dissemination was placed on hold almost immediately, ABC reports, with an email showing the departmental chief of staff cautioning that the document required review by acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, a close ally of President Donald Trump. The department reportedly told ABC that the document had not met its standards. The documentation indicates analysts had "high confidence" in the findings. The Biden campaign is accusing the Trump administration of blocking the intelligence community from sharing "a crucial finding," NBC reports.
