WASHINGTON - The US Director of National Intelligence declined to comment on Thursday when asked whether Russia or those responsible for hacking the Democratic Party or Democratic party organizations had shared any information with the United States or Americans over the last year and a half.

"Sir, I'd rather not respond off the top of my head and in any event this would probably best left to a classified session," James Clapper told a House intelligence committee hearing.
