Juan Williams on DNI Coats' Warnings: US Should 'Get Serious' on Preventing Cyberattacks from Russia
Juan Williams reacted to a warning from Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, who said Tuesday that the "U.S. is under attack... by entities" like Russia.
Coats, a former Indiana Republican senator, said America is continuing to be attacked through cyberspace by entities wishing to "penetrate virtually every major action that takes place" here.
He said he expects Russia to continue using propaganda, "false-flag personas" and the like to build on its operations heading into the 2018 and 2020 elections.
Williams said "people are putting on blinders" to the danger Russia poses to American national security.
"This is an ongoing assault," he said, adding that the Russians were pushing the "Schumer Shutdown" Twitter hashtag to court public opinion against Democrats.
"Public opinion is influenced to the benefit of the Russians," he said. "We've got to get serious."
Jesse Watters said that the Clinton campaign spent more on Facebook advertising than the Russians.
He added that the Steele dossier was the "biggest influence of Russian propaganda" - and did not favor President Donald Trump.
