Russia threat report: No 10 accused of telling ‘whopping untruths’ | Politics News



Downing Street has been accused of telling “whopping untruths” over the publication of a report into the threat posed by Russia to the UK’s democratic processes.

Mr Grieve, the chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee of parliament, has argued the prime minister is sitting on the report ahead of the 12 December election.
