CNN: US intelligence report says Russia attempted to interfere in 2020 election with goal of 'denigrating' Biden and helping Trump
Washington (CNN)The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released its declassified report on foreign threats to 2020 US elections Tuesday, which concludes that foreign adversaries — including Russia — did attempt to interfere.

WNU Editor: Another US intelligence assessment that provides no specific evidence on what Russia did, with the exception of one, and that is the claim that Russian assets tried to push the narrative of corruption between the Biden family and Ukraine (page nine of the report). The report admits this involves President Biden's son, but makes no mention of his no show-job at a Ukraine energy company that paid him millions of dollars, and former Vice-President Biden making sure that the prosecutor investigating his son's business dealings with this Ukraine company was fired.
For an intelligence assessment document, there is no mention in the report on how President Biden's policies were seen in Moscow to benefit Russia …. restrictions and elimination of oil and gas development, supporting Russia's demand to roll-over the START Treaty for a few more years, etc.,
This is not an intelligence assessment document. This is a political document to give the Biden family cover from their dealings with Ukraine.
The report is here (link here).
