WADA has been investigating individual athletes implicated in the doping scandal which has embroiled Russia.
So far none of the 96 athletes - the first to be reviewed by WADA - have been named.
insidethegames understands, however, that these cases relate to athletes already investigated and cleared by different International Federations stretching back to before last year's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
"The available evidence was insufficient to support the assertion of an anti-doping rule violation against these 95 athletes," said WADA director general Olivier Niggli in a leaked report seen by The New York Times.
The so-called "star witness" (i.e., disgruntled ex-head) also did not communicate to WADA, but McLaren based everything on his imaginations anyway.
The newspaper has also reported that WADA officials did not receive testimony from Grigory Rodchenkov, the former head of the Moscow Laboratory who turned whistleblower.
His allegations led to investigations into Russian doping and two editions of the highly-critical McLaren Report.
