Senate Intel Leaders: Putin Tried To Help Trump Win 2016 Election

Here’s more bad news for Donald Trump.

The two leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee announced that Putin ordered Russia to interfere in the 2016 election to help Trump, breaking away from Rep. Devin Nunes’ House Intel propaganda report completely.

Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday endorsed the U.S. intelligence community’s assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 presidential election to help President Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton.

Republican Trump surrogates have tried their damnedest by smearing the entire intelligence community to defend Trump at any cost.

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said, “The US Senate Intelligence Committee has just released its report on Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential elections here in the united states and the assessment from the US Intelligence community, Richard Burr says this, and remember, he’s a Republican, and I’m quoting him now. ‘There is no doubt Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections.'”

He continued, “Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the intelligence committee, said “The interference was directly ordered by President Putin in order to help Donald Trump. That’s the conclusion of the Senate Intelligence Committee.”
