Coats said the US national debt of more than $20 trillion is "unsustainable", and poses a risk "to our economic and national security".
At the same time, Coats said he expects that "North Korea will continue to use cyber operations to raise funds, launch attacks and gather intelligence against the United States".
He said there should be no doubt that Russia perceives its past efforts as successful and views the 2018 USA midterm elections as a potential target for Russian influence operations.

On the fourth and final run, Loch did what he had never done before in the Olympic Games - he had a disastrous run. Gleirscher won Austria's first gold medal at the luge in fifty years, while Mazdzer took the silver medal.

He has mocked the very notion of Russian meddling in the last election and lashed out at those who suggested otherwise.Mr. Trump has not directed his intelligence officials to specifically combat Russian interference, they said.

Senators and the spy bosses said they anxious that the past denials about collusion and the partisan battles have stolen the focus in Washington from what should be the main national effort - deterring interference and defending elections now and in the future.
