But on the other side of Capitol Hill, Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence have disputed the conclusion that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to help Donald Trump. GOP members of the House panel have cited significant intelligence tradecraft failings in the intelligence community's findings, saying it is inappropriate to conclude that The Russians acted specifically to assist Donald Trump.
