For the past 48 hours, there’s been news swirling that Donald Trump’s  may have actually been been intervened with the help of another country.

The CIA has concluded that Russia was involved in the 2016 election specifically to aid Trump win the presidency, according to a U.S. official who confirmed that the rumors are true to NPR.

“Before, there was confidence about the fact that Russia interfered,” the official said. “But there was low confidence on what the direction and intentionality of the interference was. Now they [the CIA] have come to the conclusion that Russia was trying to tip the election to Trump.”

News of the intervention was first reported on Friday by The Washington Post, who said that intelligence agencies had identified individuals with connections to the Russian government who provided thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and others, including Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, to WikiLeaks.

This upsetting news comes at a time when President Obama has ordered intelligence agencies to review foreign cyber attacks regarding the 2016 election and deliver a report prior to his exit of the White House in January.

“The president has directed the intelligence community to conduct a full review of what happened during the 2016 election process…and to capture lessons learned from that and to report to a range of stakeholders, to include the Congress,” Obama’s homeland security adviser, Lisa Monaco, told reporters.

Since reports have been making plenty of reputable headlines, President-elect Donald Trump came out to say that he doesn’t believe the CIA’s conclusion that Russia intervened in the election to help him win, offering that the assessment came to be by Democrats who supported Clinton. He also claims that the U.S. intelligence community has “no idea” what might have happened, saying on FOX News this morning, “I think it’s ridiculous. I think it’s just another excuse. I don’t believe it . . . No, I don’t believe it at all.”
