As early as December 16, 2016 the USA CIA was stating Russian hacking was to promote a Trump win.
Other media reports are lies and pandering to the President Elect. December 16, 2016 By Jeremy Diamond Washington (CNN) President Barack Obama (click here) has vowed the US will retaliate against Russia "at a time and place of our own choosing" for Moscow's hacking attempts to influence the country's elections.
A growing chorus of powerful voices on Capitol Hill -- including Mitch McConnell, the top Republican in the Senate -- is calling for a bipartisan probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential vote.
But President-elect Donald Trump has rejected out of hand any suggestions of Russian influence on the election -- despite the CIA concluding that Russia acted to help Trump win.
So why is Trump so quick to dismiss intelligence agencies' findings even as leaders of his own party express concerns about Russia's role in the 2016 election? And how conclusive are the US intelligence community's findings?
