U.S. intelligence officials have 'a high level of confidence' Putin personally involved in U.S. election meddling

U.S. intelligence officials told NBC News they have “a high level of confidence” Russian president Vladimir Putin was personally involved in Russia’s meddling in the U.S. election. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Wednesday Donald Trump was “obviously aware” of the Russian interference to help his campaign. Trump’s former campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, shot back on “Fox & Friends” Thursday and said Earnest “must be auditioning to be a political pundit.” Meanwhile, Trump took to Twitter to question again the CIA’s reports of the Russian interference with the U.S. election.
