Suspected Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Friday that he is now getting intelligence information and that Russia has continued to try to interfere in the November US election.
China also carried out activities "aimed at losing confidence in the outcome of the election," Biden told supporters during an online fundraiser for his campaign.
"We know it from before, and I guarantee you that I know it now, because now I'm getting briefings again.
The Russians are still trying to delegitimize our electoral process, "said Biden.
He warned that if Russia continued to interfere, it would be "a real price to pay" if it won the November election against Republican President Donald Trump. It is unclear when Biden received the intelligence information that is normal for major party presidential candidates.
His campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Biden said at a press conference on June 30 that he was not offered a classified briefing and "could very well" ask for reports after reports. Trump has not responded to intelligence reports that Russia has billed US troops in Afghanistan.
The former vice president under President Barack Obama has criticized Trump for reports that he has not read his intelligence information. Several U.S. intelligence agencies found that Russia helped Trump in the 2016 elections, an accusation that Russia denies and that Trump has repeatedly called a "joke."
