US Intelligence Report on Russian hacking

US Intelligence officials said in a 25-page report on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the hacks of the Democratic National Committee to help Donald Trump win the 2016 election.

They accused the Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of using the WikiLeaks, DCLeaks.com, and Guccifer 2.0 to release US political parties' data. This was a full report by the US Intelligence officials following President Obama's order last December, following a doubt that Russia intervened in the US presidential election.

After the report was released, many Democrats said the document is reasonable for a strong response to avoid a similar incident.

President-elect Donald Trump downplayed Russia's role in the election after a briefing with top US intelligence officials. He said he will appoint a team within 90 days to figure out ways to stop foreign hacking.

Russia has denied all allegations of the US government on its hacking at the US election.
