(Worthy News) - Breaking with the House, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Wednesday endorsed a U.S. intelligence finding that Russia secretly tried to interfere with the 2016 election to boost Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton, calling the accusations of Russian meddling 'accurate and on point.'
Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee revealed their conclusion after a closed-door hearing on the issue with the top Obama administration officials who authorized the intelligence consensus report that was publicly released just two weeks before Mr. Trump took office in January 2017.
But the Senate panel, which avoided many of the partisan fights that plagued the House Intelligence Committee’s probe, said it was still exploring the question of whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, and many GOP lawmakers said they has seen no evidence of Mr. Trump’s personal involvement. The panel earlier this month said it had found no proof the Russians had swayed the elections or managed to change vote counts. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
