This is the March 30, 2017 hearing on "Disinformation: A Primer in Russian Active Measures and Influence Campaigns, Panel I" before the Select Committee on Intelligence of the United States Senate. From Senator Richard Burr's opening statement: "This morning the committee will engage in an activity that's quite rare for us, an open hearing on an ongoing critical intelligence question: the role of Russian active measures past and present. As many of you know, this committee is conducting a thorough, independent, and nonpartisan review of the Russian active measures campaign conducted against the 2016 U.S. elections. Some of the intelligence provided to the committee is extremely sensitive, which requires that most of the work be conducted in a secure setting to maintain the integrity of the information and to protect the very sensitive sources and methods that gave us access to that intelligence. However, the Vice Chairman and I understand the gravity of the issues that we're here reviewing and have decided that it's crucial that we take the rare step of discussing publicly an ongoing intelligence question. That's why we've convened this second open hearing on the topic of Russian active measures, and I can assure you to the extent possible the committee will hold additional open hearings on this issue." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Roy Godson, Eugene Rumer, and Clint Watts.
