National Intelligence Director Dan Coats says it is clear that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election.
President Trump tried to cast more doubts on that assertion during his Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In a statement, Coats said Russia is continuing efforts to undermine American democracy.
He also vowed to continue providing unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of U.S. national security.
