The report reveals the CIA is now claiming Julian Assange is an agent of the Russian Federation, that Wikileaks got the hacked DNC Emails directly from the Russians, AND RT is a Kremlin-sponsored propaganda news outlet.
It also reveals that the CIA is running a psy-op meant to invalidate and discredit the Trump presidency. The CIA has ALWAYS been a useful arm of political power, but now its political nature is brought to bear in a more overt manner.

Background to “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections”: The Analytic Process and Cyber Incident Attribution
“Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections” is a declassified version of a highly classified assessment that has been provided to the President and to recipients approved by the President.
• The Intelligence Community rarely can publicly reveal the full extent of its knowledge or the precise bases for its assessments, as the release of such information would reveal sensitive sources or methods and imperil the ability to collect critical foreign intelligence in the future.
• Thus, while the conclusions in the report are all reflected in the classified assessment, the declassified report does not and cannot include the full supporting information, including specific intelligence and sources and methods.
The Analytic Process
The mission of the Intelligence Community is to seek to reduce the uncertainty surrounding foreign activities, capabilities, or leaders’ intentions. This objective is difficult to achieve when seeking to understand complex issues on which foreign actors go to extraordinary lengths to hide or obfuscate their activities.
• On these issues of great importance to US national security, the goal of intelligence analysis is to provide assessments to decisionmakers that are intellectually rigorous, objective, timely, and useful, and that adhere to tradecraft standards.
• The tradecraft standards for analytic products have been refined over the past ten years. These standards include describing sources (including their reliability and access to the information they provide), clearly expressing uncertainty, distinguishing between underlying information and analysts’ judgments and assumptions, exploring alternatives, demonstrating relevance to the customer, using strong and transparent logic, and explaining change or consistency in judgments over time.
• Applying these standards helps ensure that the Intelligence Community provides US policymakers, warfighters, and operators with the best and most accurate insight, warning, and context, as well as potential opportunities to advance US national security.
Intelligence Community analysts integrate information from a wide range of sources, including human sources, technical collection, and open source information, and apply specialized skills and structured analytic tools to draw inferences informed by the data available, relevant past activity, and logic and reasoning to provide insight into what is happening and the prospects for the future.
• A critical part of the analyst’s task is to explain uncertainties associated with major judgments based on the quantity and quality of the source material, information gaps, and the complexity of the issue.
• When Intelligence Community analysts use words such as “we assess” or “we judge,” they are conveying an analytic assessment or judgment.
• Some analytic judgments are based directly on collected information; others rest on previous judgments, which serve as building blocks in rigorous analysis. In either type of judgment, the tradecraft standards outlined above ensure that analysts have an appropriate basis for the judgment.

  2. We know the truth when we hear it. Thank you. And that is why they lost. All those years they were lying to americans we knew they were lies. That is, those of us with IQs over 100 anyway. again, thank you

  3. NSA has only "moderate confidence" in the assessment. Hmmmm. NSA actually did the real investigatory work, following various pathways through the web to learn where the footprints led. They decided, apparently, that maybe ("moderate confidence") it led to Putin. They hand their report over to CIA (which knows squat about cybersecurity or the web in general). CIA reevaluates the NSA's expert (and tentative) conclusion, giving "high confidence" to it. The MSM eats that up with a spoon. Hmmm. Does anyone detect the sweet fragrance of bullshit here?
