Russian president Vladimir Putin interfered in the US presidential election to aid Donald Trump, according to a declassified assessment by the NSA, CIA and FBI.
“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 [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump,” the agencies found in a long-awaited report that stands to hang over the head of the incoming Trump administration.
So, who is going to be the first journalist (I can’t, not my subject matter at Forbes) to compare and contrast this with the Clinton Administration’s support of Yeltsin against Zyuganov?
I was there at the time and it was all pretty obvious.
Steyn perhaps? Williamson?
Much of the report seems to be complaining that RT and Sputnik, as state funded operations, reflect the desires of the state.
Blow me down with a wet haddock then. VOA never does anything comparable of course.
