On Thursday, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told a conservative think tank that the “intelligence community’s assessment is that the Russian meddling that took place did not affect the outcome of the election,” significantly mischaracterizing a report the intelligence community issued in January. A CIA spokesman quickly clarified, “The intelligence assessment with regard to Russian election meddling has not changed, and the director did not intend to suggest that it had.”The unclassified January report from the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) office did “not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election,” describing the Moscow-linked activities as unprecedented in scope and aimed at undermining American faith in its institutions and helping elect President Trump. Former DNI James Clapper said on CNN in September that “our intelligence community assessment did, I think, serve to cast doubt on the legitimacy of his victory.”Pompeo, a former GOP congressman, has been accused of downplaying Russia’s effect on the election, as has Trump. “This is another example of Pompeo politicizing intelligence,” a former senior U.S. intelligence official told The Washington Post. Pompeo “is the most political CIA director since Bill Casey” during the Reagan administration, the official added. “This significantly undermines the intelligence community’s credibility.” In his talk on Thursday, Pompeo also said the “former CIA talking heads on TV” are required to stay quiet about their work far “beyond the day you turn in your badge.” Peter Weber
