“no evidence…………major let down………………..highly underwhelming.”

Few expected the declassified report from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Russian hacking to contain many bombshells. But even by those lowered standards, the 25-page report is being called “disappointing,” “underwhelming” and “very thin” by national security experts and reporters.

The ODNI report concludes, as expected, that Russian president Vladimir Putin directed spy agencies to engage in a campaign of cyber attacks against U.S. political groups, think tanks, and businesses. It also states that Putin sought to undermine Hillary Clinton and to meddle in the U.S. democratic process.

The Kremlin’s goals shifting during its hacking campaign, the report states. At various points, Russia’s intelligence agencies hoped to help Donald Trump’s electoral chances by directing the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign.

But as Election Day neared and most of the world believed that Clinton would beat the Republican, Putin and his comrades were resigned merely to undermine a President Clinton as much as they could.
