Trump agreed with conclusions of U.S. intelligence on Russian hacker attacks


U.S. president-elect Donald Trump agreed with the conclusions of U.S. intelligence that the hacker attacks during election campaign were organized by Russia, said his assistant Reince Priebus – the future head of the presidential administration.

Earlier, Trump repeatedly expressed his doubts about this. For example, he explained leaks from servers Democratic by their own gross negligence.

On Sunday Priebus gave an interview to Fox News, in which he said that “the fact that this particular hack was perpetrated by Russian entities is something no one is disputing”. Priebus added that “actions may be taken”, but “that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with trying to have a good relationship with Russia”.

Although, Priebus pointed out that the Democrats have done nothing to prevent illegal access to their correspondence by “foreign structures”, which led to leakage of data. Earlier, information appeared in the media that, for example, one of the computers that hackers gained access to was protected with password “password”.

Donald Trump has got access to the full report of U.S. intelligence with accusations against Russia. Only the limited version was presented to the public, and it said that the Russian intervention in U.S. elections was personally ordered by President Vladimir Putin.
