Senate Report Backs Russian Interference Claims

Postby toucana on July 3rd, 2018, 7:18 pm 

The Senate Intelligence Committee has unequivocally upheld the conclusion of the intelligence community that Russia developed a "clear preference" for then-candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 election and sought to help him win the White House.

The bi-partisan report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee flatly contradicts the position taken by the House Intelligence committee under the chairmanship of Rep. Devin Nunes who has been widely denounced as an apologist for Donald Trump, and also been accused of obstructing justice in plain sight by some critics.

After sixteen months of work, the Senate Intellgence Committee’s unclassified report concluded:
“The Committee has spent the last 16 months reviewing the sources, tradecraft and analytic work underpinning the Intelligence Community Assessment and sees no reason to dispute the conclusions,” ... LJULY3.pdf

In yet another contradiction to Trump allies claims, the Senate panel also found that a piece of Democratic-funded opposition research known as the Steele dossier did not "in any way inform the analysis in the ICA — including the key findings."

This was "because it was unverified information and had not been disseminated as serialized intelligence reporting," the Senate report found. 

All in all, the Senate panel's report was a unflinching contradiction of many of the core claims made by Trump allies in the House.
