Vladimir Putin Reportedly Had Several Goals to Achieve

According to one high-level intelligence source, who reported to NBC News, what started as a “vendetta” against Hillary Clinton, spread into an effort to show corruption in American politics. The source reported that Putin wanted to “split off-key American allies by creating the image that (other countries) couldn’t depend on the U.S. to be a credible global leader. The CIA has assessed that the Russian government wanted to elect Donald Trump. Other agencies, including the FBI, don’t fully endorse that view.

The intelligence officials say they have solid information connecting Putin to the operation. Their use of the term “high confidence” implies that the intelligence is nearly incontrovertible. One former CIA official said the Obama administration may feel compelled to respond before leaving office. He said, “This whole thing has heated up so much. I can very easily see them saying, ‘We can’t just say wow, this was terrible and there’s nothing we can do.'”
