President-elect Trump has issued a statement following his briefing with various intelligence agencies over the Russian hacking allegations, seemingly rejecting the Democrats’ charges that it was the Russians alone and that it had any effect on the outcome of the election.
Additionally, Trump promised to appoint a team to give him a plan to combat cyber attacks within 90 days of taking office.
Not quite the “stunning” reaction that Nancy Pelosi had.
The mainstream media is very disappointed…
Why. Can’t. He. Just. Say. He. Accepts. The. Conclusion. Of. The. Intel. Agencies?
It is seriously weird he won’t just admit Russia did it.

In nstmt, Trump says that Russia and many others constantly TRY to hack US targets. Won’t say Moscow meddled in 2016 campaign. Sad!
