The intent of Russia's covert meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election is probably somewhere between the two.Trump, unbelievably, seemed to be taking a potential adversary's side against his own nation's intelligence professionals.An administration official wouldn't comment on whether Obama had shared with Trump the intelligence assessment and plan for wider review.Schiff said he had no doubt the Russians wanted to hurt Clinton and help Trump. In Russian eyes, he said, Clinton had sought to undermine President Vladimir Putin after the 2011 parliamentary elections and to foment "color revolutions" in areas of Russian influence. Trump's bogus claims that the election was rigged and that he might not accept the outcome added to Obama's concerns.Obama has another five weeks left to shape the transition and deter Russian actions.
