Intel office promises more info on election hack
WASHINGTON - The agency that oversees U.S. intelligence says it will release more information to the public about Russia's attempts to influence the election once a review ordered by President Barack Obama is complete - but not before.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence is responding to reports that the U.S. intelligence community is conflicted about whether Russian hacking was intended to help Donald Trump.
Obama has ordered a review of foreign interference in U.S. elections to be completed before he leaves office on Jan. 20. The office of DNI James Clapper says it will brief Congress on the conclusions and will also inform the public "consistent with protecting intelligence sources and methods." That means some details may be withheld.
Clapper's office says it won't comment until then.
