Donald Trump’s transition team dismisses CIA findings Russia attempted to influence US election in his favour

Donald Trump’s transition team has dismissed the CIA’s reported findings that Russia intervened in the US election in an attempt to ensure his victory, comparing them to investigations into Iraq’s non-existence weapons of mass destruction.

The President-elect previously said he did not believe the Russian government had interfered, after making friendly overtures towards Vladimir Putin.

“These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,” said a statement from his transition team.

“The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest electoral college victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again’.”.. see more
