CIA Captured Putin’s ‘Specific Instructions’ to Hack the 2016 Election

Putin ordered hacking of election in USTwo weeks before his inauguration, Donald Trump was told in a top-secret briefing that the CIA had “extraordinary” intelligence proving Russian president Vladimir Putin gave “specific instructions” on how Russia would hack the United States 2016 presidential election, according to an explosive new investigative report by the Washington Post published on Thursday.

But despite hearing first-hand that the CIA had “captured” Putin’s orders, Trump never ordered an investigation into the Russian meddling and as late as November of this year, after a face-to-face meeting with Putin, said Putin told him that Russia “didn’t meddle” in the election, “and I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it,” Trump said last month. “I think he is very insulted by it.”

In fact, as the first 11 months of his term have progressed, Trump has only become “more adamant” in his insistence that U.S. intelligence findings on Russia’s election interference are wrong, Post reporters Greg Miller, Greg Jaffe, and Philip Rucker wrote in the lengthy article, which may be accessed online at this link.

The information about the highly classified CIA intelligence on Putin’s election orders was delivered to Trump at a January 6 briefing in Trump Tower, conducted by FBI Director James Comey and National Intelligence Director James Clapper. Though Trump appeared to take the news in stride, according to the Post exclusive, he became enraged when Comey later informed him of information contained in the then-secret “Steele Dossier,” the Post reported.
