The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and intelligence community officials say Iran and Russia have "taken specific actions to influence public opinion" in the upcoming presidential election.

John Ratcliffe, the U.S. Director of National Security, said Wednesday that Iran is behind a series of emails and other messages to voters containing both intimidating threats to vote for particular candidates, as well as false information about voting.

The emails were sent after Iran obtained "some voter information" from U.S. databases, he said.
