President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday again expressed skepticism about U.S. intelligence conclusions that Russia was involved in a covert campaign to interfere in the presidential election, and said "hacking is a very hard thing to prove," NBC News reported.
"I just want them to be sure, because it's a pretty serious charge, and I want them to be sure," Trump said of assessments that Russia, and possibly its president Vladimir Putin, was involved in the campaign of cyber-attacks and attempted interference in the electoral process.
"And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove," Trump said outside his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida, where the president-elect was holding a New Year's Eve bash. "So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don't know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation."
