Donald Trump stopped by Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace and was hit with questions revolving around Russia’s suspected hacking during Election 2016 and the secret CIA report from earlier in the week. The president-elect’s response, despite evidence to the contrary, was to brush it off and blame it all on sour grapes within the Democratic party. Trump claims that Democrats are behind the reports and that none of it is to be believed:
“I think it’s ridiculous. I think it’s just another excuse,” Mr. Trump said in the interview, on “Fox News Sunday.” “I don’t believe it.”
President Obama called for a full review of the Russian hacking claims ahead of reports on the secret CIA report and a bi-partisan group of senators released a statement calling for a review of the reports that have been released saying the stakes are too high and that the subject cannot become a partisan issue.
