Russian interference continued beyond January 2017, when the intelligence community issued its assessment (ICA), according to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s second unclassified report on Russian election activities, published Tuesday.

One big thing: The committee also reaffirmed its support for the intelligence community's findings, stating that the report's conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election with a clear "preference" for then-candidate Donald Trump is "supported by the evidence.”
