The public will get to see an unclassified version of the intelligence community’s report on Russian hacking by early next week, the director of national intelligence said on Thursday.
President Obama had requested that the report, which is expected to give the public an idea of what influence Russia had on the U.S. election, be released before his term ends on Jan. 20, a deadline the intelligence community seems poised to meet.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the public version of the report from the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency will be released next week and briefed to Congress.
Clapper said he had four briefings planned for Congress next week, including meetings for the full House and Senate as well as closed sessions with the oversight committees to go into more detail about sources and methods.
While the unclassified report will not include sensitive sources and methods that could hurt the intelligence community, Clapper stressed that he is releasing as much as possible to the public.
