‘They’re kidding, right?’ Social media unimpressed by intel report on Russia ‘hacking’ US election
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released the report on Friday titled “Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US elections.”

It wouldn’t be RT without some conspiracy theories, right?
In conclusion, the DNI cited two RT programmes they say were used to “intensify” criticism of Hillary Clinton… both of which haven’t been on the air in over a year.
