The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has released a report concluding that Russian Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in the 2016 election with the clear goal of helping Donald Trump win.

“Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency,” the intelligence report reads. “We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump.”

This is a declassified version of the intelligence report that President-elect Trump was briefed on this afternoon. The report states that the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the National Security Agency have all concluded that the Russian government aspired to help Trump win the election by discrediting Hillary Clinton; however, while the CIA and the FBI have “high confidence” in this conclusion, the NSA only has “moderate confidence.”

The report goes on to say that Russia gained access to U.S. state and local electoral boards. However, the types of systems the Russians accessed were not involved in vote tallying, and therefore there is no evidence to suggest that Russia actually changed vote counts on Election Day. The report also says that Russia obtained information from Republican-affiliated targets but did not disclose this as they did with information obtained from the Democratic National Committee.

The influence campaign ordered by Vladimir Putin involved blending covert intelligence with efforts lead by government-run media and paid “trolls,” the report says. It concludes that Russia plans to carry out additional influence campaigns of this kind in the future.

“We assess Moscow will apply lessons learned from its Putin-ordered campaign aimed at the US presidential election to future influence efforts worldwide, including against US allies and their election processes,” the report reads.

This comes roughly one hour after President-elect Donald Trump released a statement downplaying Russia’s role in the presidential election and after months of Trump saying that anyone could have been involved in hacking the Democratic National Committee.

“While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines,” Trump said in a statement.

Kellyanne Conway, Donald Trump’s campaign manager and incoming counselor to the president, said this morning that Russia did not want Trump to be elected, a statement that contradicts the conclusion of the CIA, the FBI and the NSA.

“The Russians didn’t want him elected, because he has said very clearly during the campaign and now as President-elect that he is going to modernize our nuclear capability, he’s going to call for an increase in defense budget, he’s going to have oil and gas exploration — all which goes against Russia’s economic and military interests,” Conway told CNN.

  1. How do these Bozos !
    That allowed Hillary Clinton to flee prosecution ! And
    knew that Bill Clinton was handing out pardons to his dope trafficking buddies.
    Also knew that Benghazi was a gun deal that went bad !
    And remained silent to the American people so Obama could get a second term !!
    Now claim that they are not quite sure ! but pretty sure ! but maybe ! That Putin was involved in the DNC hacking !
    I think the real reason is because Obama’s buddies that are in mosul were trying to retreat !!
    Putin took his jet fighters and ordered his pilots.
    Do not allow them to retreat out of mosul.

    That’s why President Obama told the Russians to leave the United States. Because Putin was bombing Obama’s Buddies you know the ones he gave all the cash too.
    But ! What do I know I’m just a deplorable

    • Denial is not just a river in Egypt! LOL! Typical Trump voter! Don’t let any facts get in the way! Believe in stead this circus clown that is a misogynist, Xena phobic, racist, delusional, egotistical, not qualified, idiot! Much like yourself! LOL! But that’s OK… He’s going to fix all of your problems! LOL

      • There are no facts with a Democrat ! Only Make Believe and stories.
        And all Muslim people give out flowers and candy !!
        Let us not forget about the Muslim King Obama, giving a billion dollars in cash to terrorists !
        Inviting cop killers to the White House ! Yes I saw the black live matter movement beat up on old man and old ladies !
        Just the other day four of them went to jail for a hate crime for beating up on that handicap. But !
        You Democrats and Muslims go ahead and believe in your pixie and fairy dust.

        Your time is running out !
        So beat up the handicapped and old men and women !
        Because pretty soon you’ll just be a shit stain on a pair of old underwear.

        ((TRUMP))
        The president of the United States

  2. The report made heavy-mention of RT news’ use of free speech to undermine HRC.
    The phrase ‘Putin hacked the election’ is replaced by the phrase ‘Putin may have sought to influence the election’.
    Even with that softening, the NSA only expressed moderate confidence in the report’s assessment.

    • We’ve fallen away from CIA/McCain/Graham reporting that Putin hacked the election to this::
      “Russia used trolls as well as RT as part of its influence efforts to denigrate Secretary Clinton.”

      /ffs

  3. In light of the CLEAR EVIDENCE that this C-L-O-W-N P-R-E-Z was in COLLUSION with Putin re this hack of the DNC, for the DNI and “Homeland Security (what a joke!)” would even D-A-R-E “debrief” this B-L-O-O-D-Y J-E-R-K on their… O-B-V-I-O-U-L-Y!… RETARDED FINDINGS, indicates to me– at least!– that the DNI and “Homeland Security” are a T-H-R-E-A-T to U.S. Security, and that Americans are S-C-R-E-W-E-D when it comes to “Intelligence Agencies” protecting their interests!
    .
    Please!… no emails!

  4. This document reveals nothing which wasn’t available in the global media. They hacked/targeted both parties but only the DNC is worth mentioning. “Aspired” not Conspired. Nice choice of words in an Intel assessment derived from a “Highly Classified Assessment”. This is pure garbage and a waste. CIA, NSA and FBI joint adventure here to produce this crap in record time but still can’t produce any information on the damage done by a Secretary of State using a private server for “Highly Sensitive” communications. Soviet’s have a “history of conducting covert influence campaigns focused on U.S. Presidential elections” but really wasn’t a big deal until this election.

    • They just can’t stand the fact that the witch lost. It was Killary’s own words and that of the entire DNC that’s screwed up. They got just what they deserved. Sore frigging dangerous losers who all need to go to hell

      • Typical delusional Trump supporter! Get a book… Actually read it! But don’t worry Donald Trump I’m sorry … fake presidentDonald Putin Will fix all of your problems! LOL!

  5. Why are you all focusing on nonsense… As opposed to the fact that Donald Trump is still refusing to except Russia role in his getting elected? I never thought I see a time where Republican voters are willing to put our country security on the line , 1st of all by electing this circus clown, and then by denying that he got help from Russia to be in position of presidency. Long gone are the days of a dignified presidency. I think Obama is the last. Donald Trump has absolutely no respect for the office of the presidency,of others, or the democracy in this country . But don’t worry he is going to fix all of your problems. LOL

    • getta grip ,you have your head so far up your ass you can’t see because of all of the shit in your way.
      So pull your head out of your ass ! take a deep breath ! stop all your whining ,and go get a job ! because the rest of us are tired of paying for your lazy ass .
