The spokesman added that the language of the intelligence community's assessment is "nuanced" and said that the reporter's question "did not reflect the specific language in the assessment itself". "Russian goals included undermining faith in the US democratic process and harming a candidate's electability and potential presidency".

"House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said they would not support a bipartisan statement that might hurt their nominee for president", Clapper writes in an excerpt of the book published by NPR.
