Senate Intel Panel Agrees Russia Intervened In 2016 Presidential Election
May 17, 2018, 05:02
The Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday endorsed the findings of the intelligence community's report on Russia's 2016 election interference, and its findings that Russian President Vladimir Putin worked to aid President Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton's White House bid. Trump has minimized assertion of intelligence services on Moscow's efforts to help him become president, has denied any coordination with Russian Federation, and has claimed to suffer a "witch-hunt". Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement Wednesday. Mark Warner of Virginia, said that "after a thorough review, our staff concluded that the ICA conclusions were accurate and on point".
The assessment, which USA intelligence leaders issued weeks before Trump's inauguration in January 2017, concluded that Russian leader Vladimir Putin had ordered an "influence campaign" intended " to undermine public faith in the United States democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency".
Burr issued his statement after members of the committee met in a closed session with former National Intelligence Director James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of the National Security Agency, Mike Rogers.
"I can state declaratively that it had nothing to do with Russian Federation because I had no involvement there", he said. We now know that - despite her early denials of ties to Putin - Veselnitskaya is, in fact, a Russian informant.
Wednesday's statement also included remarks from Sen.
"After a few minutes of this labored presentation, Jared Kushner, who is sitting next to me, appeared somewhat agitated by this and said, I really have no idea what you're talking about". "And I recall that she began the presentation exactly where she had begun it last time, nearly word for word, which seemed, by his body language, to infuriate him even more". "I do think they dropped the ball with respect to crediting the Steele dossier - I think it gave rise to a lot of rumors and gave rise to a lot of unverified information, which should not have been part of it".
However, Veselnitskaya apparently spent most of the meeting alleging that she had discovered the flow of illicit funds to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), as well as inveighing against the Magnitsky Act, a USA sanctions law that prompted Russia to ban US adoptions of Russian children. They had a very thin slice of what they were looking at. Trump, Jr., replied, "I$3 f it's what you say I love it".
Sen. Tom Cotton, an Arkansas Republican and a frequent defender of Trump's, declined to comment. House Democrats also roundly disagreed with those findings. "Politics, I knew nothing about", Goldstone said, adding that neither did Emin Agalarov nor Agalarov's father, Aras.
