Hillary Clinton: US democracy in 'full-fledged crisis' under Trump

Tyler Houlton, a DHS spokesman, said shortly after that Nielsen was familiar with the 2017 assessment.

"I don't believe that I have seen that conclusion".

Russian President Vladimir Putin says his hopes for improved relations with the U.S. under President Donald Trump are all but dashed.

Nielson dodged the question by asserting that Russian Federation attempted to "manipulate public confidence on both sides".

Additionally, the steady drumbeat of news about Trump associates, near and far, entertaining Russian operatives before, during, and after the United States election have also made the prospect of the U.S. cozying up to Russia less likely.

Intelligence agencies say Russian operatives attempted to hack 21 electoral systems in states during the 2016 campaign, breaching one system.

She made the remarks in response to a reporter's question after holding a classified meeting on 2018 election security with members of the House of Representatives.

In the 2017 assessment, the FBI, CIA and NSA all agreed that Russian Federation interfered with a preference for Trump.

That Russian President Vladimir Putin developed a clear preference for a Trump victory was at the heart of an assessment by the FBI, CIA and NSA delivered in January 2017, shortly before Trump took office. "All three agencies agree with this judgment", the report's conclusion found.

Some of Trump's closest conservative allies in Congress on Tuesday called for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate the FBI probe into Trump's campaign, Russian Federation and the 2016 election.

In the months before the election, the Federal Bureau of Investigation also was investigating the Clinton Foundation for its fundraising practices and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's and some of her associates' use of a private email server while she was Obama's Secretary of State. The Russian effort was extensive, sophisticated, and ordered by President Putin himself for the objective of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton. "Importantly, they targeted both major political parties".

The spokesman added that the language of the intelligence community's assessment is "nuanced" and said that the reporter's question "did not reflect the specific language in the assessment itself".

Nielsen's comments come just days after the Senate Intelligence Committee announced it sided with the intelligence community in its findings on Russian interference.

A similar conflict exists in Congress, where the Senate and the House Intelligence Committees have reached very different conclusions about Russia's intentions.
