A declassified report of alleged Russian hacking does not make an assessment on the impact of hacking on the election outcome.

“Insights into Russian efforts — including specific cyber operations — and Russian views of key US players derive from multiple corroborating sources,” the report stated.

“We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump’s election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him,” the report states. “All three agencies agree with this judgment. CIA and FBI have high confidence in this judgment, NSA has moderate confidence.”

“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election,” it said.

“Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary [Hillary] Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency.”

“While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines,” the statement from the president-elect stated.

House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan said in a press release.

“We must also be clear that there is no evidence that there was any interference in the voting or balloting process. We cannot allow partisans to exploit this report in an attempt to delegitimize the president-elect’s victory,” Ryan stated on Friday. “Donald Trump won this election fair and square because he heard the voices of Americans who felt forgotten.”
