Julia Ioffe, a writer for The Atlantic who watches Russia carefully, tweeted this about the intelligence community's unclassified report on Russian hacking released Friday: "It's hard to tell if the thinness of the #hacking report is because the proof is classified, or because the proof doesn't exist."
"Thin" is right. The report is brief -- the heart of it is just five broadly-spaced pages. It is all conclusions and no evidence. In the introduction, the IC -- the collective voice of the CIA, the FBI, and the NSA -- explains that it cannot supply evidence to the public, because doing so "would reveal sensitive sources or methods and imperil the ability to collect critical foreign intelligence in the future."
