Former intel chief Clapper definitively smacks down Trump's lies about Russian Federation hacking

08 Juillet 2017

The New York Times and Associated Press posted corrections last week walking back the widely reported claim that all 17 US intelligence agencies agreed that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election with the goal of helping Donald Trump.

"I heard it was 17 agencies". Do we even have that many intelligence agencies, right? And we did some very heavy research.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper warned on CNN Thursday that Russians could try to attack Republicans, seemingly forgetting that they already did. Still, NBC reporter Katy Tur chose to get snarky, tweeting erroneously that 17 intelligence agencies signed off on the report and cc'ing the POTUS account.

"What struck me...is that the US government was concerned enough last summer about Russian interference in the election that they had the Central Intelligence Agency director make contact with his Russian counterpart and tell them to stop". "They said he choked".

Host, Norah O' Donnell: "Well it appears they did nothing".

"I think it was Russian Federation and I think it could have been other people in other countries", Mr Trump said during a press conference in Poland.

Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., questions former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson as he testifies to the House Intelligence Committee task force on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, June 21, 2017, as part of the Russian Federation investigation.

Every time Donald Trump tries to obfuscate and misdirect about Russia's interference in the 2016 election, representatives from the USA intelligence community collectively knock down the misinformation. That assessment was based on information collected by three agencies - the FBI, CIA and National Security Agency - and published by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which represents all US intelligence agencies. The assessment was made by four intelligence agencies - the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency. "Not all 17 intelligence agencies were involved in reaching the assessment".

Just before President Barack Obama left office in January, the DNI issued a declassified version of the intelligence community assessment, which concluded Russian Federation had been behind the hacking of Democratic Party emails and had also pushed propaganda online aimed at harming Hillary Clinton's campaign.

According to Erik Wemple at the Washington Post neither the New York Times nor the Office of the Director of National Intelligence have commented since.

CNN reported Thursday that Russian Federation was increasing spy efforts in the United States, emboldened by the lack of strong action by the Obama and Trump administrations.

Russian Federation has denied any involvement.
