DISINFO: CIA report on Russian cyberattacks offers no evidence


The CIA report on Russia’s cyberattacks has no evidence proving that Russian secret service interfered into the US presidential election.


The CIA report consists of two parts. The content of the second part, which presumably contains this evidence, is classified. Moreover, both President Obama and President-elect Donald Trump accept the U.S. intelligence community's conclusion that Russia engaged in cyber attacks during the US Presidential election.
