State Dept. Was Granted $120 Million to Fight Russian Meddling. It Has
Spent $0.

WASHINGTON - As Russia’s virtual war against the United States
continues unabated with the midterm elections approaching, the State
Department has yet to spend any of the $120 million it has been
allocated since late 2016 to counter foreign efforts to meddle in
elections or sow distrust in democracy.

As a result, not one of the 23 analysts working in the department’s
Global Engagement Center --- which has been tasked with countering
Moscow’s disinformation campaign --- speaks Russian, and a department
hiring freeze has hindered efforts to recruit the computer experts
needed to track the Russian efforts.
