Senate Panel Agrees: Russia Meddled in 2016 Election
Thursday, 17 May 2018 11:05 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr said Wednesday that his committee's investigation had shown Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help Donald Trump, affirming findings of the U.S. intelligence community.

"We see no reasons to dispute the conclusions," the North Carolina Republican said. "There is no doubt that Russia undertook an unprecedented effort to interfere with our 2016 elections."

Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, applauded the intelligence community and said, "The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated and ordered by President [Vladimir] Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton."

Burr said the panel reached the conclusion after staff members spent 14 months "reviewing the sources, tradecraft and analytic work."

The announcement came hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee released more than 2,500 pages of transcripts regarding a June 2016 meeting that included representatives of Trump, including his son Donald Jr., and a group of Russians who promised damaging information about Clinton, the eventual Democratic presidential nominee.
