Another government report is confirming that Russia did indeed meddle in the 2016 presidential election.  

The Senate Intelligence Committee released its initial findings Tuesday. It said the U.S. intelligence community's assessment that Russia influenced our election to help Donald Trump win is "sound." And it also says Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the influence effort. 

This report doesn't appear to come to the same conclusions as the House Intelligence Committee's.

The House's final report supported most of the intelligence community's assessment, but it didn't have confidence in the assertion that Putin wanted Trump to win. 

The Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation is still ongoing, so more findings are to come.
