Source: The Washington Post -Secret CIA assessment says Russia was trying to help Trump win White House
Leaked CIA memo showed that the Russian government did do some things to try to help Trump get elected, not just to cast doubt on the US democracy and its election system.
Intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided WikiLeaks with thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, according to U.S. officials. Those officials described the individuals as actors known to the intelligence community and part of a wider Russian operation to boost Trump and hurt Clinton’s chances. The CIA shared its latest assessment with key senators in a closed-door briefing on Capitol Hill last week, in which agency officials cited a growing body of intelligence from multiple sources. Agency briefers told the senators it was now “quite clear” that electing Trump was Russia’s goal, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence matters.
To some, this is grounds for war.
The CIA, and FBI all have the same consensus that Russia did things to help Trump.
It seems not one but now two agencies are on the same page, the plot thickens.
