The New York Post: Senate panel agrees with intelligence finding that Russia interfered in election, backed Trump

The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday upheld the assessment by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia helped President Donald Trump win the 2016 election.

“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,” Sen. Richard M. Burr, R-N.C., the panel’s chairman, said in a statement.

Lawmakers released an unclassified report on Tuesday, outlining why they chose to back the ICA ruling — which stated that “Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump” during the election.

“The Committee found that the ICA provided a range of all-source reporting to support these assessments,” the Senate panel said.
