WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) today made the following statement on the newly released, declassified version of the Director of National Intelligence’s report on Russia’s hacking interference in 2016:

“The Intelligence Community's report on Russian activities and intentions in recent US elections highlights for the American people the direct and aggressive covert influence campaign conducted against our nation.
