Russian interference in US elections: the inquiry finds no direct evidence

Summary of Disinformation

After two years of investigation, Democrats and Republicans of the US Senate’s Intelligence Committee agreed that they have not discovered any direct evidence of Russian conspiracy in Donald Trump’s campaign. Two years of investigation, 200 interviews of witnesses, investigators from the US Senate Intelligence Committee, working to rule on possible Russian interference in the US presidential campaign, have failed, CBS news reported.

Disproof

RT forwards claims, not supported by the CBS report. It only mentions the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Republican Richard Burr's personal estimation, which does not match the views of the co-chairman of the Committee, Democratic senator Marc Warner.

In addition, the US Justice Department has charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking Democratic officials in the 2016 US elections. Previously, 13 Russian citizens as well as the Internet Research Agency, Concord Management and Concord Catering had been charged with interfering with the US political system.
