On Friday afternoon amid the chaos of the shooting at Fort Lauderdale International Airport, US Intelligence put out a report on “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections”.
It's a 25 page declassified version of a classified report that was given to both President Obama and President-elect Trump. The report is worded very strongly and its findings are definitive. You’ll find the key judgements on page seven.
Watch as I take you through some of those findings and unpack them a bit.
I think once you hear it, especially the judgement that no votes were affected by Russian actions, it's understandable why President-elect Trump is a bit dismissive towards this report.
While it’s clear Russian actions have led to the undermining of American democracy, that should in no way diminish the legitimacy of Trump’s Presidency.
