China has played the most active role among countries seeking to interfere in the US elections and has the biggest agenda to influence domestic politics, US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien said on Friday without provide details.“We know the Chinese have played the most active role,” O’Brien told reporters at a briefing.

He said China had “the most massive program to politically influence the United States,” followed by Iran and then Russia.

U.S. intelligence has discovered that Russia has orchestrated a cyber campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election in favor of Donald Trump and there have been reports that hackers may attempt to influence the November 3 election .

Trump has long rejected this conclusion and instead presented himself as a victim of election interference – from Beijing.

“We have made it very clear to the Chinese, Russians, Iranians and others who have not been publicly disclosed that anyone … who attempts to interfere with the US election will face extraordinary consequences,” said O’Brien.
