The Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee put out its report today from its study of the 2016 election and whether there was any Russian meddling. From that report --
“We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S . presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump."
Needless to say, this vastly undercuts any of Trump's attempts to rely on the House report that ended its investigation prematurely and didn't interview many witnesses, largely discrediting that House committee report with specifics.
