DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. January 7, 2017, 8:42 AM (IDT)

Vladimir Putin ordered an “influence campaign” aimed at the 2016 US presidential election to “denigrate” Hillary Clinton with “a clear preference for President-elect Trump” – according to a declassified report issued by US intelligence Friday. Donald Trump hit back, saying that the effort had no effect on the election. He counter-attacked the Obama administration, accusing it of ignoring massive hacking operations going on for eight years by Russia and others against the White House, the Pentagon, other federal institutions and corporate businesses. Yet after years of “gross negligence,” the administration only woke up when the DNC was hacked. Vice President-elect Mike Pence promised that the incoming administration would aggressively and effectively fight alien hacking operations against America.


Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.

    Intel about as accurate as the false climate warming reports. We have a dishonest president. There is no proof Putin did anything. Trump won fair and square but the NWO sickos cannot accept their criminal lost.
