U. S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Acting Chairman Marco Rubio (R-FL):
“We can say, without any hesitation, that the Committee found absolutely no evidence that then-candidate Donald Trump or his campaign colluded with the Russian government to meddle in the 2016 election."

The report, itself:
"It is our conclusion, based on the facts detailed in the Committee's Report, that the Russian intelligence services' assault on the integrity of the 2016 U. S. electoral process and Trump and his associates' participation in and enabling of this Russian activity, represents one of the single most grave counterintelligence threats to American national security in the modem era."

Also: "The value of the Committee's investigation is not purely historical. The counterintelligence lessons contained in this report regarding what happened to the United States in 2016 should be an alarm bell for the nation, and for those preparing to defend the nation against current and evolving threats targeting the upcoming U. S. elections. Indeed, Russia is actively interfering again in the 2020 U. S. election to assist Donald Trump, and some of the 946
President's associates are amplifying those efforts. It is vitally important that the country be ready."

This report comes from a majority Republican Senate committee.

As usual, no anonymous opinions.
