Background to “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections": The Analytic Process and Cyber Incident AttributionODNI Released 06 Jan 2017 -- "On December 9, 2016, President Barack Obama directed the Intelligence Community to conduct a full review and produce a comprehensive intelligence report assessing Russian activities and intentions in recent U.S. elections. We have completed this report and briefed President Obama as well as President-elect Trump and Congressional leadership.
