Skip to comments.Russia favored Trump in 2016, Senate panel says, breaking with House GOP
Posted on 05/16/2018 11:06:13 AM PDT by detective
The Senate Intelligence Committee has determined that the intelligence community was correct in assessing that Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election with the aim of helping then-candidate Donald Trump, contradicting findings House Republicans reached last month.
Our staff concluded that the [intelligence communitys] conclusions were accurate and on point, the panels vice chairman, Sen. Mark R. Warner (D-Va.), said Wednesday in a joint statement with Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), its chairman. The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the purpose of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton, Warner continued.

What is wrong with the Republican Senators? They take the word of Comey, Clapper and Brennan and are unable to think for themselves.
What is Chairman Sen. Richard Burr doing? Nunes and Republican House members have done a great job. Republican Senators have done a terrible job.
Who needs proof when you have Rats and Trump hating RINO’s?
My bet is Trump isn’t the only person who has been/is being spied upon.
Riddle me this - how come the vast majority of fake news/manipulation/etc identified has either been simply divisive materials that directly supported neither candidate - or actually promoted Hillary?
AKA: The Uniparty.
I wondering what actual proof they are going to show.
Or is it just the word of Clapper, Brennan and Comey? Is just a lot of “in my opinion they Russians did this and the Russians did that” so it must be true.
Israel also favored Trump in 2016
WAPO and MSN. What great sources. Anyone with a brain can figure the one who sold them our uranium was the one they owned.
Because Burr detests Trump.
Frankly, we could see that conclusion being reached. They expected Shrillary to win, so they worked to HURT her.
If they had expected Trump to win, they would have worked to HURT him....
There was STILL no collusion.
Little Dickie Burr is a tool. So glad he is not my Senator any longer. But know I am stuck with Linda Grahamnesty.
Whether or not the Russians wanted to help Trump and slam Hillary, there is no evidence that Trump was complicit, or for that matter, that the trolling had any effect at all.
Obama campaigned in Germany. He went to England in an effort to have Brexit defeated. He had Khadaffi assassinated.
There was no collusion. That was the final verdict of the House Intelligence Committee. The Senate does not refute this. I’d like to see proof that Russia tried to help Trump and more proof that they did help him.
Nik, this is a modified limited hangout.
I’ve got a Burr in my saddle.
Isnt this a big So What? No crime here that I can see.
Okay then state the facts on how they did it, when they did it, where they did it, and in what manner it benefited Trump and /or hurt Hillary. Then after you have done that show some proof, ANY proof, that Trump was connected to it. Else just shut up because we are sick and tired of this nonsense!
I wouldn’t believe anything Comey, Clapper or Brennan say about anything.
Russia’s main export is oil and natural gas. Why would the Russians support a candidate, aka Donald Trump, who wants to “drill baby drill?”
President Trump’s energy policies hurt Russia’s bottom line.
And the president’s military buildup? I doubt if Russia is happy about that either.
