They announce they concur and endorse the full conclusions of the US Intel community that Russia (under the request and authority of Putin) did interfere in 2016 with the election to "Help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton" per their press release. Which is the exact opposite findings of the House Intel Committee

Of the 2500+ documents the Senate Intell Committee released today

The Senate Judiciary Committee said the Russian Govt may have used the NRA to help Trump's 2016 campaign.

The Judiciary Committee said they had a number of documents suggesting the Kremlin directly used the NRA as a means of accessing and assisting the Trump campaign by secretly funneling money to the Trump campaign through the NRA, but did say more investigation into the matter should be done

The report identified 2 Russians who were involved with the effort. Alexander Torshin who is a member of the Russian Central Bank and hosted an NRA delegation in Moscow in 2013, and Maria Butina who is the founder of a pro gun group in Russia who introduced herself at a Washington DC Inauguration Party in DC last year that she was "part of the Trump campaign's communications with Russia team.

Sen Lankford says the Intel Community and their findings on Russian Meddling
the IC did a good job in a very rapid time period pulling together the details," "The ICA wasn't comprehensive about everything. They had a very thin slice of what they were looking at. For what they did, in the time period they did it, it was accurate."

Right. Mostly I was responding to the “crickets” GIF. As in, there’s crickets because this isn’t news. It was news 6 months ago.

There is a little bit of new info so far, but not too much. The documents were released today and there were 2500+ of them so more will come out later if it is significant.
