The Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday announced they back prior findings by U.S. intelligence agencies that conclude Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election in an effort to boost Donald Trump’s campaign.

Why it matters: Their findings break from Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee which announced in March they found no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
