The centerpiece of the collusion narrative was the intelligence community’s assessment that the Russians “meddled” in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the Presidency.

Liberals cited Trump’s denial of this as evidence that he was in league with the Russians.

But now, an official report is set to be released that will reveal the truth about this accusation that no one saw coming.

After Trump won the election, the FBI, CIA, DNI, and NSA produced an assessment that claimed Russia interfered in the election to help Donald Trump win.

Journalists and Democrats would then cite that Trump not criticizing every thing Putin did was evidence that the Russian President either had dirt on Trump or was the payback for Russia helping him steal the election.

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee compiled their report on alleged Russian election interference.

They directly dispute this claim and find there is no evidence to support it.

The Washington Examiner reports:

 “In addition, the committee took issue with the intelligence community assessment of Russian motivations in the 2016 election. The committee agrees with the assessment that the Russians did, in fact, try to interfere — the findings cite “Russian cyberattacks on U.S. political institutions in 2015-2016 and their use of social media to sow discord.” But the committee disagrees with the intelligence community judgment that Russian President Vladimir Putin specifically tried to help President Trump win the election.

The committee’s findings say investigators came to “concurrence with the Intelligence Community Assessment’s judgments, except with respect to Putin’s supposed preference for candidate Trump…

… On the question of Putin’s motivation, Conaway said Republican investigators viewed the same intelligence that the Intelligence Community did in making its assessment. But they differed with the IC, not on the fact that Russia acted, but on Vladimir Putin’s purposes.

“It was clear that he was sowing discord in our elections,” Conaway said, “pitting one American against another, tried to influence it through social media and other things. But we couldn’t establish the same conclusion that the CIA did that they specifically wanted to help Trump.”

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) backed up the House’s findings.

Burr said he also has not seen evidence to substantiate the claim that Putin worked to elect Trump.

CNN reports:

“Burr would not say if he agreed with the Intelligence Community’s assessment that Putin tried to help Trump, calling it simply “a 30-day snapshot.”

“I don’t think we’ve seen anything that would substantiate that to this point,” Burr said.”

The House Intelligence Committee examined 300,000 pages of documents as well as the intelligence that was gathered.

And the media narrative about collusion and Russian meddling in order to elect Trump just went up in smoke.
