With just months to go before the U.S. midterm elections, it appears an array of Russian bots and trolls are already testing the waters.

The Associated Press reports that sponsors of the Russian "troll factory" that meddled in the 2016 presidential campaign have launched a new American website—USAReally.

However, its chief editor, Alexander Malkevich, denies any intent to meddle in U.S. affairs, suggesting that when it comes to division, Americans are their own worst enemy.

"Disrupt elections? You will do all that without us," he told AP.

The news comes as the nation's top intelligence official warns America is facing a critical new level of cyberwarfare.

Speaking at the Hudson Institute, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said the nation's digital infrastructure is literally under attack and "warning lights are blinking red," much like just before 9/11.

The intelligence chief noted that Russia is actively trying to undermine American democracy.
