Macron ironise sur les rumeurs autour de sa double vie à Bobino. Log In - New York Times. France fears that Russia is trying to push Marine Le Pen to victory – VICE News. France’s top intelligence agency fears that Russia is trying to sway the upcoming presidential elections in favor of far-right candidate Marine Le Pen.

The agency also believes Russia may seek to upend Le Pen’s opponents by publishing their confidential emails. The allegations are being taken seriously, so much so that Le Canard claims the next defense meeting at the Élysée Palace will address this subject specifically. Neither the DGSE nor the Kremlin responded to a request from VICE News for comment on the allegations.

France might be next after the United States, where hacks carried out by Russian intelligence are believed to have helped Trump secure his recent win. Russian covert operations, like hacking the Democrats and spreading compromising material, or promoting fake news on Facebook and other social networks to bolster Trump’s image, are also expected in France. French site Le Canard Enchaîné reported on Wednesday that the country’s Directorate General for External Security (DGSE) believes that Russia will help far-right candidate Marine Le Pen using similar tactics.

His revelation came just weeks after the U.S Department of Justice sandbagged the proposed sale of Deutsche Telekom’s T-Mobile USA unit to AT&T (s t).
