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

‘Alarming to see that the Secretary charged with protecting the 2018 elections claims not to have read the intelligence on the 2016 elections.

If she had, she would have seen the specific evidence the Russians sought to help Trump, a finding now affirmed on a bipartisan basis.” – Rep Adam Schiff

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Tuesday that she has not seen the U.S. intelligencecommunity’s specific judgment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to help President Trump win.

“I do not believe that I have seen that conclusion,” Nielsen told reporters following a closed-door briefing on election security with members of Congress, though she added that she has “no reason to doubt any intelligence community assessment” in general. https://goo.gl/RU6ng3
