U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen speaks to reporters after she, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats briefed members of the U.S. House of Representatives on election security at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., May 22, 2018.
"I do not believe that I've seen that conclusion that specific intent was to help President Trump win", Nielsen insisted. "I'm not aware of that, but I do generally have no reason to doubt any intelligence assessment".
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen said on Tuesday that she was unaware of the intelligence community's assessment that. So far, she said, the department has not seen evidence that Russian Federation is trying to meddle in any particular races this year. All three agencies agree with this judgment.
An unclassified extract of one report made public by the committee examined security weaknesses in USA election systems.
Shortly afterwards, Nielsen tried to clarify her statement by saying its unclear if Russian Federation had a "specific intent" favoring Trump - based on the actions they took in their 2016 cyber campaign.
Former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, finally admitted what most of us already suspected: Donald Trump didn't really win the election, Russian Federation did. And at worst, they were knowingly part of a criminal conspiracy to defraud the American people of one of our most fundamental rights, the right to vote. "Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the United States democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency".
"We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump's election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him".
