The Senate Intel Russia Report. If you've been wondering why you haven't seen Evan lately, it's because this fucker on "Counterintelligence Threats and Vulnerabilities" is 996 pages long, and it makes LIL BIT OF NEWS, particularly of the Roger Stone/Julian Assange kind, though I assume there's others.
