The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday quietly released a new report supporting the Intelligence Community’s position and report that Russia interfered in the 2016 U.S. election to help Donald Trump win the White House. The committee is led by Republicans, including Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC). The report, its fourth, was bipartisan and unanimous.


The Committee reports that the December 2016 Intelligence Community Assessment delivered “a coherent and well-constructed intelligence basis for the case of unprecedented Russian interference,” and “reflects strong tradecraft.”

President Donald Trump has repeatedly lied to the American people about what he falsely labels the Russia hoax.

The Senate report spans 158 pages and is highly-redacted. It can be read on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s website, here.
