  • DHS secretary says she hasn’t seen assessment that Russia interfered to help Trump win

Reporters asked Nielsen if she questioned a 2017 intelligence community assessment that Russian President Vladimir Putin directed efforts to meddle in the presidential election to try and help President Trump.

Nielsen's remarks, which come amid her reported tensions with Trump over immigration, sparked instant condemnation. And when pressed about the conclusion regarding Trump, Nielsen sidestepped.

"I don't believe I've seen that conclusion", Nielsen said. "We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump", the report said.

Trump last month credited Stallone, the actor who portrayed Rocky Balboa in the iconic film series, for urging Johnson's pardon. The law was passed two years earlier and made it a crime to take a woman across state lines for immoral purposes.

So I think what they're trying to do, in my opinion, and I defer to the intel community, is just disrupt our belief and our own understanding of what's happening. "I'm not aware of that", Nielsen said, responding to a reporter's question after briefing House members on election security efforts.

Representative Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, said after the briefing that members were concerned that "not only Russian Federation but possibly other foreign adversaries are now going to start looking at how they can meddle in the midterm elections and we need to be prepared. All three agencies agree with this judgment", the report's conclusion found.

She stopped short of saying Russian Federation tried to sway the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor. 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 USA democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency", the assessment states.

Opponents slam Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's election victory as a sham
He also accused Maduro's government of rationing food parcels "selectively" to manipulate hungry citizens' votes. It has also limited transactions involving Venezuelan bonds and the country's new cryptocurrency.

"House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said they would not support a bipartisan statement that might hurt their nominee for president", Clapper writes in an excerpt of the book published by NPR. They claimed in their report that the intelligence community didn't follow its best practices when it concluded Russian Federation favored Trump in the election.
