  • Intelligence assessment on Russian activities

    See linked document

    https://www.dni.gov/files/documents/ICA_2017_01.pdf

    Main conclusion

    We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. We have high confidence in these judgments.

    Main conclusion


    However, there remains no positive proof that this stratagem worked, while it remains most probable that Clinton's criminal activities did the most to harm her campaign, along with her connection to the failed Obama administration.

    And don't forget to mention that the Chinese allegedly wanted Hilary and worked hard on her behalf. We know for a fact that China donated heavily to Clinton, as did several European nations.

    So, in the end, it really doesn't matter because Americans didn't want Clinton to begin with.

      So long as the only thing they did was release damning Democrat internal e-mails that were true, then the Russians did the US public a favor that their own press failed to do. The Russians exposed the Democrats for what they are and that just piled on what the public already knew or suspected about them.

      The Democrats have no one to blame for that except themselves.

        Here we go again. No proof no evidence only conclusions drawn from assets way to valuable to expose!
        Where have we heard this line of lies before?
        The only reference is to some website they believe is operated by the Russians.
        Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

          Speaker Ryan has gone on record with the public report now...

          http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politi...cid=spartandhp

          "Russia has a track record of working against our interests, and they clearly tried to meddle in our political system. I strongly condemn any outside interference in our elections, which we must work to prevent moving forward," Ryan said in a statement.
          "We must also be clear that*there is no evidence that there was any interference in the voting or balloting process.

          "We cannot allow*partisans*to exploit this report in an attempt to delegitimize the president-elect's victory. Donald Trump*won this election fair and square because he*heard the voices of Americans who felt forgotten," Ryan continued.
          The report states that Russian actors did not compromise any "vote tallying" systems.
          Thus, this whole issue is over the Democrats getting outed for their questionable actions within their party and towards the election.

            A bureaucracy drawing conclusions without providing a shred of evidence... Shocking...
            The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released Friday the unclassified version of a report on Russian election interference efforts that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called “stunning.” The report, however, is devoid of evidence for the allegations that Russia was involved in an effort to hack Democrats and leak information, and focuses more on the Kremlin-funded news network RT.

              Just can't admit it Doc... Even PE Trump had to shallow his hyperbole act after the briefing and say some that would try to save him some face.

              Acting like a liberal Doc. Blind to common sense.

                  She and the other confessional leadership got the full breif. No one, not even PE Trump, is supporting your view. You invested too much in having President Obama's admin being wrong that you can't even look at what is going on.

                    But security experts say that the document provides little in the way of forensic "proof" to confirm the government's attribution. Private security firms — like CrowdStrike, who investigated the DNC breach — went much further, they say.

                    "The DHS statement is a restatement of already known public information, a series of technical indicators that are intended for use by cybersecurity professionals in finding and remediating APT28 malware on private sector networks, and some generic advice for companies as to how to improve their network security," said Matt Tait, founder of the U.K.-based security consultancy Capital Alpha Security.

                      Of course not. Do you want the actual Intel release, the Intel that damages our sources and methods.

                        What part of "evidence" don't you comprehend?
                        While the unclassified report is short on detailed evidence, it lays out a case for how and why Russia sought to influence the 2016 election — and specifically to benefit Trump, in the estimations of the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency.

                          They released what they could. By the way it matches all that stuff those "sources" you don't like said.

                          PE Trump does not support you talking points. Give it up.

                            Where does Trump disagree with what I posted?
                            “I had a constructive meeting and conversation with the leaders of the Intelligence Community this afternoon. I have tremendous respect for the work and service done by the men and women of this community to our great nation.

                            “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. There were attempts to hack the Republican National Committee, but the RNC had strong hacking defenses and the hackers were unsuccessful.

                            “Whether it is our government, organizations, associations or businesses we need to aggressively combat and stop cyberattacks. I will appoint a team to give me a plan within 90 days of taking office. The methods, tools and tactics we use to keep America safe should not be a public discussion that will benefit those who seek to do us harm. Two weeks from today I will take the oath of office and America’s safety and security will be my number one priority.”

                              For the past two decades the Clintons have without shame or embarrassment accepted cash donations from foreign governments and very powerful wealthy political activists for the expressed reason of helping the Clintons win elections, not because these governments and powerful people liked the Clintons, but because they expected considerable influence and the opertunity to shape political and economic outcomes.
                              No concern from the intelligence community.....hmmm.
                              Since 2008 there has been civil wars in Syria, political upheaval in Egypt, Lybia and all over North Africa. Iran has openly funded terrorism, Russia invaded Ukraine , has threatened our allies in NATO with military intimidation, all with barely so much as a blink from Obamas administration or congress or the liberal press.
                              Oh there has been many lines drawn in the sandbox, but even as terrorist crucified people, beheaded people, raped people, nothing more than lines, sanctions, and of course billions of dollars given to Iran...
                              But now Russia has allegedly hacked a E-mail server!
                              KATY BAR THE DOOR!
                              We are supposed to become outraged that a foreign government may have desired to, and even taken some behind the scenes effort to help a candidate.
                              I am sure that no other nation has ever tried to influence a election in another country....let see, CIA in Cuba.....CIA in Argentina.....CIA in the Philippines...the CIA in Vietnam.....the CIA in Thailand.....India....Pakistan......
                              North Korea.....Canada....Mexico.....Panama....Costa Rica.....Nicaragua....Brazil...South Africa...Somalia....etc. etc.?
                              Yawn.....
