Senate panel releases final report on Russian interference, details counterintelligence threats

The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday released its long-awaited final report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, marking the end to a sprawling investigation that began in January 2017.

The fifth volume, which is more than 950 pages long, examined “Counterintelligence Threats and Vulnerabilities” during the high profile election race.

The panel says it interviewed more than 200 witnesses and reviewed over one million pages of documents to examine the questions of Russian’s efforts to sow discord, the U.S. government’s response to Moscow, the intelligence community’s handling of the threat, and counterintelligence threats.

“No probe into this matter has been more exhaustive,” said acting Senate Intelligence Chairperson Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in a statement.
