Putin has lost faith in Trump’s promise to improve US-Russia relations

DHS chief seems to disagree on Putin backing Trump

"I don't have any observations to make about it", McConnell told reporters Tuesday on Capitol Hill.

However, Nielsen also said she had no reason to question any intelligence findings and added that Russian Federation did try to influence United States voters and will continue to do it in the future.

"Right now we're living through a full-fledged crisis in our democracy", she said.

"We see them continuing to conduct foreign influence campaigns", Nielsen said, but added there was no evidence that Russian Federation had been targeting specific races.

Nielsen, who was sworn in as Homeland Security secretary in December, indicated Tuesday that she was unaware of that assessment.

He also wants a "real-time communications channel" between the intelligence community and technology companies in order to assure that internet firms are notified if evidence emerges that Russian Federation is creating fake Facebook pages or taking other actions to try to influence the elections.

So far, she said, the department has not seen evidence that Russian Federation is trying to meddle in any particular races this year. 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.

Following a classified election security briefing for Congress, Nielsen spoke to reporters, including CNN's Manu Raju. "It's an integrity issue of who is saying what and why and how that may or may not affect an American's behavior in what they're voting for". "Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. All three agencies agree with this judgment", it continued.

Putin blamed political firestorms that are now engulfing the Trump administration, and offered up a veiled criticism of the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, which he said prevents Trump from pursuing stronger ties with Russian Federation. "Russian goals included undermining faith in the USA democratic process and harming a candidate's electability and potential presidency".

"I know that the Intelligence Community can not serve our nation if facts are negotiable".

"Despite the short time frame they had to prepare it, the intelligence community did a very good job with the ICA", said Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Senator Mark Warner (D-VA).

The House of Representatives Intelligence Committee's Republican majority, however, said it found "no evidence of collusion, coordination, or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians". And all major intelligence community leaders - including those appointed by Trump - have endorsed the finding.
