Clapper: RT reporting on US problems part of ‘multifaceted’ Russian campaign to undermine elections

RT | January 5, 2017

attackedinnocenceRT’s reporting on US issues was part of a “multifaceted Russian campaign” to undermine America, according to the outgoing Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“RT was very active in promoting a particular point of view, disparaging our system, our alleged hypocrisy about human rights, etc. Whatever crack, fissure they could find in our tapestry, they would exploit it,” Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday, at a hearing about cybersecurity challenges.

In addition to hacking, Russia used fake news, social media and RT to influence the recent US elections, Clapper argued.

Though the US intelligence community has not been able to gauge the actual impact of any of these actions, “the totality of that effort, not only as DNI but as a citizen, I think is a grave concern,” he said.

  1. “RT was very active in promoting a particular point of view, disparaging our system, our alleged hypocrisy about human rights, etc. Whatever crack, fissure they could find in our tapestry, they would exploit it,”

    That’s good….coming from a guy who openly lied to Congress about NSA Surveillance programs.
