There was no Russian interference in the US elections 2016

Summary of Disinformation

The report commissioned by Senator Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is “a dull student report”, in fact there was no Russian interference in the US elections 2016.

Disproof

The 200 page report cites exhaustive detail and is deeply sourced, with 20 pages alone of source citations.

Titled “Putin’s Asymmetric Assault on Democracy in Russia and Europe: Implications for U.S. National Security” and published by the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee on January 10, the report investigates Russia’s interference in political and electoral processes of “semi-consolidated” and “fully-consolidated” democracies in Europe. It does not examine Russia’s meddling in the U.S. 2016 presidential election, which was the subject of a report by the U.S. intelligence community published in January 2017, and is currently being investigated by several congressional committees and a Department of Justice special counsel.
