"We have already seen Iran sending spoof emails designed to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President Donald Trump.
You may have seen some reporting on this in the last 24 hours, or you may have even been one of the recipients of those emails.
The emails -- which were sent to registered voters from "firstname.lastname@example.org" and warned recipients to "Vote for Trump or else!" -- were intended to damage the President.
Iran and Russia both obtain voter registration information
The intelligence community has assessed Iran's intentions are consistent with Bill Evanina's previous statements on this matter and tonight's announcement was made with specific regard to its current activities.
Evanina, the intelligence community's top election security official, had said in August that Russia, Iran, and China were all aiming to interfere in the 2020 election.
The Iranians are following US politics closely and understand the background of the Proud Boys recently coming up in the presidential debate and know that sending the emails they did would cause blowback in the media that would be damaging to Trump because of these perceived violent Trump supporters threatening Democrats.
The official was alluding to when Trump told the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by" during the first presidential debate, a remark that drew widespread criticism. Iran rejected the charges that it is interfering in the upcoming presidential election and called out Trump's own "desperate" efforts to undermine the faith American citizens have in the election integrity.
"Unlike the U.S., Iran does not interfere in other country's elections. The world has been witnessing U.S.' own desperate public attempts to question the outcome of its own election at the highest level," Alireza Miryousefi, the press officer for Iran's mission to the UN, wrote on Twitter.
The government assesses that some of the data the Iranians obtained came from vendor and state systems, and was not just publicly available voter registration information. Last week, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency warned about the vulnerability in an alert that said the agency was "aware of some instances where this activity resulted in unauthorized access to elections support systems."
There is concern that Russia similarly accessed data but it is not clear what their intention is, the source said.
One county told us that a foreign entity would not have to hack into an election system in Florida to obtain registered voters' email addresses. Kim Barton, the supervisor of elections for Alachua County, Florida, said if voters include their email addresses when they register to vote, that information can be obtained through public records requests.
Prior to being asked about foreign involvement on Wednesday, Barton said she had not learned anything about the source of the emails.
"We have been working along with the state and other agencies to ensure that our elections are safe. We are doing our part," Barton said.
A source in a Florida election office told CNN that during an FBI briefing Wednesday, agents told them the Proud Boy email threats about voting for Trump came from a nation-state -- and they are seeing them across the country. The source said the agents told them these emails "were not the work of a Florida guy in his basement."
Some emails included a link to a disinformation video
The US government said Iran was also responsible for spreading disinformation about voter fraud through a video linked in some of the emails.
"Sad but true, bad actors continue their attempts to undermine confidence in the election, now with a misleading video," Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Director Chris Krebs tweeted before the news conference.
Trump has frequently made baseless claims about voter fraud and has in the past refused to say if he would allow a peaceful transfer of power if he lost in the election, citing concerns about mail-in voting. There is no widespread voter fraud in the US, though isolated incidents do occur.
Set to an instrumental version of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," the video is a screen recording of a "tutorial" that shows how a purported fraudulent ballot is allegedly cast by someone utilizing the Federal Voting Assistance Program. The computer's background has the Proud Boys logo on it.
But the video is disinformation.
Federal write-in-absentee ballots, CISA says, are generally used by military and overseas voters as a backup in case they didn't receive their absentee ballots. "Changing an election using fraudulently submitted FWABs would be highly difficult to do," CISA's election rumor control page reads. "This is because election offices have security measures in place to detect such activity."
William Adler of the Center for Democracy and Technology told CNN, "This video is pretty clearly intended to communicate that all mail-in voting is rife with fraud, which is just not true."
"You can't just print out a bunch of ballots and send them in. You have to have to identify information," Adler said, pointing to things like signatures. "There are those checks that would make it hard to fake lots and lots of FWAB's."
The link directed victims to a video hosted on OrangeDox.com, a file hosting site. Its CEO and co-founder Chad Brown says they removed it from the site after a news organization notified them of it.

At the early age of 4, Adam began his tennis career at the world-renown Rick Macci Tennis Academy in South Florida. Adam remained a highly ranked Junior Tennis player for his entire junior career. Once completing high school, Mr. Adler received a scholarship to play tennis at the University of South Carolina and graduated in 2007 Magna Cum Laude from USC, double majoring in Sports & Entertainment Management and Business. While at USC, Adam began his career by developing a patented algorithmic software as the base for his social networking company, Ultimate Social Networking Inc (USNI), and developing Ultimate College Model, seeing this to acquisition.
Adam’s love for completion never waned. Adam began playing poker in his free time and quickly became entrenched in the game, studying hours a day.

FDA/cGMP approved facility in Oxnard CA.
This is where Adam’s passion for biotech really began. His sports background allowed him to take this brand and bring in global icons around a strategic marketing plan activating the world’s most iconic athletes and celebrities. Adam developed this revolutionary technology in 2009. Using sublingual, buccal mucosal, and transdermal absorption directly to the bloodstream, by-passing the GI tract, Adam’s company Fuse Science completely changed the way consumers receive vitamins, electrolytes, nutrients, and medicines. Going direct to the bloodstream, bypassing the GI Tract, the platform technology was a game-changer. Adam self-funded this company privately for over 2 years, developing the product line and securing the IP. As Chief Executive Officer, Adam grew the company rapidly, seeing its market cap increase from $500,000 to over $100,000,000.
Adam put together one of the most impressive lists of athlete partners on the planet, signing Tiger Woods (including the rights to his bag for 5 years), Andy Murray, Tyson Chandler, Paul Pierce, Big Papi David Ortiz, Jose Bautista, Arian Foster, Paul Rodriguez, and many others.
