Donald Trump Briefed on the Possibility of Russian Hacking

President-elect Donald Trump acknowledged the possibility today that Russia had hacked a variety of American targets. One of the targets was the Democratic National Committee. Trump met with top intelligence officials for almost two-hours.

It seems the most important item Trump wanted to get through to the American people was that the hacking had no effect on the outcome of the election.

Trump, in a statement, said, “While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines.”

Several hours before the meeting Trump spoke to The New York Times. The telephone call was about the Russian hacking of American political institutions. During the conversation he repeatedly criticized the intense focus on Russia. Trump also said, ‘With all that being said, I don’t want countries to be hacking our country. They’ve hacked the White House. They’ve hacked Congress. We’re like the hacking capital of the world.”

Despite the fact the U.S. intelligence agencies have declared that Russian President, Vladimir Putin ordered the hacking, Trump still will not accept this conclusion.

  1. You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually something that I feel I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very huge for me. I am taking a look forward in your next submit, I will try to get the hang of it!
