HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): HARRIS FAULKNER (CO-HOST): Anyway, a new report commissioned by the Senate offering the most extensive analysis yet into Russia's efforts to spread the vision and misinformation during the 2016 presidential election.

FAULKNER: So, part of what I said in the intro to all of this had to do with the fact that some believe that it was for the purpose of putting a certain person in office. Why can't it just be for the purpose of messing it up so badly that nobody has any faith in the system?
