"I think it’s correct to say the Russians don’t think they can dictate the outcome," Adam B. Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, was quoted as saying by the media.
In October, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security jointly stated that Washington was "confident" the Russian government had directed computer attacks against US political organizations. Russian officials have repeatedly denied any interference in the US presidential election.
"Does anyone seriously think that Russia can somehow influence the choice of the American people? Is America a banana republic or what? America is a great power," Russian President Vladimir Putin said, commenting on the claims of Russia's trace in the cyberattacks.
The US presidential election will take place on November 8.
