Clapper: No Evidence Russians Changed Votes in Presidential Election, But They Tried to Interfere With Propaganda

Testifying in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee Thursday morning, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper made it clear Russian hacking didn't change the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

"They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort," Clapper stated. 

Although vote totals weren't changed, U.S. intelligence shows Russia did mount a major campaign to push propaganda into the minds of American voters through Twitter, fake news websites and the Russian government backed television station RT, which broadcasts in the United States.

"The Russians have a long history of interfering in elections, theirs and other people's," Clapper stated. "I don't think we've ever encountered a more aggressive or direct campaign to interfere in our election than we've seen in this case."  

DNI is expected to release an extensive report about Russian cyber interference in the coming days.
