  • Trump has thus far been unwilling to concede the assessment, released in mid-October, from 17 federal intelligence agencies that officially blamed Russia for a series of cyberattacks.
  • Trump called the Post’s report “ridiculous. I think it’s just another excuse. I don’t believe it.”
  • “Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card.”

President-elect Donald Trump complained Monday that his doubts concerning Russian interference in last month’s presidential election are being held to an unfair standard, writing on Twitter that if he were to complain about foreign meddling “it would be called conspiracy theory!”

Trump has thus far been unwilling to concede the assessment, released in mid-October, from 17 federal intelligence agencies that officially blamed Russia for a series of cyberattacks against U.S. political targets. A Washington Post report published last week said that it is the “consensus view” of the intelligence community that those attacks were carried out by Russia with the aim of installing Trump as the next president.

In a “Fox News Sunday” interview taped over the weekend, Trump called the Post’s report “ridiculous. I think it’s just another excuse. I don’t believe it.” He said that the source of the cyberattacks remains an open question within the intelligence community, a false claim given the joint statement released in October by the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security. Trump told “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace that the perpetrator could be Russia or China or “somebody sitting in a bed someplace.”

“Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory!” Trump wrote on twitter, following it up with another post to add that “unless you catch ‘hackers’ in the act, it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking. Why wasn’t this brought up before election?”

    Hillary started this "story" to cover her own arse. Once her extremely "careless" behavior was exposed, she needed a cover story in the MSM. She fabricated that it had to be the Russians who hacked her oh so vulnerable homebrew server. She and she alone is the guilty party to send and receive unsecured emails. To suggest it was Trump and Putin because of a joke he made during his campaign is ridiculous. Come off it Obama. Please stop this lie, NOW!!! No one believes a word democrats say!!! This "Russian" connection is non-existent! TRUMP WON, so shut up and get out of his way, like you said you would. "A peaceful transition" is what you said. So, for the good of the nation shut up, and move on with your civilian life!!! We are more than tired of your
    "popping off" as you put it.
