Senate Intel Panel: Russia wanted to hurt Hillary, help TrumpThe Senate Intelligence Committee — in a major split with its House counterpart — said Wednesday that it agrees with U.S. intelligence agencies' assessment that the Russian government was trying to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton by meddling in the 2016 election.

That bipartisan conclusion was announced by Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., in a statement after a closed hearing with former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan, and former National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.

It's a major finding from the Senate panel's continuing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
