Trump: Russian Election Interference “Ridiculous”


President-elect Donald Trump did an interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” and had a few words to say about the CIA report on Rusian election interference.

Trump spoke with Fox News’ Chris Wallace in the president-elect’s first Sunday show interview since winning the election.

Trump called the accusation ridiculous and stated that the CIA’s reported assessment that Russia intervened in the election is another excuse the Democrats are trying to push to explain their stunning loss.

According to Fox, Trump said, “It’s just another excuse. I don’t believe it,” Trump said. “Every week it’s another excuse.  We had a massive landslide victory, as you know, in the Electoral College.”

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report that the CIA concluded after a special investigation that Russia interfered with the race to boost Trump, not just undermine confidence in the system.

Trump told Wallace, “There’s great confusion. The Democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeats in the history of politics in this country.”

“Nobody really knows, and hacking is very interesting. Once they hack, if you don’t catch them in the act you’re not going to catch them,” Trump said. “They have no idea if it’s Russia or China or somebody. It could be somebody sitting in a bed some place.”

Trump added that the Democrats are embarrassed.
