(ConservativeInsider.org) – President Donald Trump remains committed to ensuring voters who cast votes in this year’s election did so freely and without foreign manipulation. Having thought ahead, an executive order from 2018 enables the current administration to provide an assessment of foreign interference in the election by December 18.
On September 12, 2018, Trump signed an “Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election.” This ensures that the Director of National Intelligence provides reports on any foreign governments that “acted with the intent or purpose of interfering” in this election. Currently, John Ratcliffe holds this position.
Additionally, within 45 days of receiving the report, the Attorney General must provide an analysis of how the said interference affected election integrity, ballot counts, and the results timeline.

Through this executive order, Trump ensures to clear the air of any potential ties between political candidates and foreign adversaries.
