Donald Trump rejects CIA Russia hacking report

Donald Trump rejects CIA Russia hacking report

Donald Trump called ‘ridiculous’ that report of CIA, which describes the role of Russian hackers in the US Presidential election. President-elect rejected intelligence agency’s conclusions.

On Friday, CIA officials informed the American media on the conclusions after the investigation. According to their report, the Russian hackers’ attack aimed at the help Mr Trump to win.

The CIA’s report says that Russian hackers tried to sway the election in his favour. President-elect told that Democrats were putting out the reports because they were embarrassed at the scale of the election defeat.

Kremlin denies again any links to Mr Trump or hackers, while President-elect said it might have been Russia but it was impossible to know:

“They have no idea if it’s Russia or China or somebody sitting in a bed some place.” 

The scandal with hacking started in October, then US government officials pointed the finger at Russia, accusing it of meddling in the campaign to undermine the electoral process.
