Former White House officials, requesting anonymity to discuss intelligence reporting, confirmed that the administration began receiving increased traffic in 2014 about Russian disinformation and covert influence in campaigns.

Nunes: The Obama administration was "dedicated to delusions of 'resetting' relations with Russia," and "ignored pleas by numerous Intelligence Committee members to take more forceful action against the Kremlin's aggression."
"It appears, however, that after eight years the administration has suddenly awoken to the threat."
