Donald Trump still doesn’t accept intelligence conclusion on Russia: Scaramucci
Written by Pallavi Parmar

The newly appointed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said that the US President Donald Trump remains unconvinced that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election. He told CNN about Sunday night conversation he had with the president about alleged Russian interference where he said ‘Hey you know, this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn’t do it,’.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence released an unclassified report showing the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency all concluded the Russian government attempted to influence the election to bring down Hillary Clinton and help Trump, Prior to Trump’s inauguration. Trump does not yet accept the conclusion of the intelligence community and he questioned the media’s pursuit of the story, saying it tarnished Trump’s victory in November suggested Scaramucci.

Scaramucci said that he intended to review the intelligence community’s evidence once he had his security clearance and pledged to give his personal thoughts on the conclusion to Donald Trump. And he told the CNN that the mainstream media position on this they interfered in the election. He further added that Donald Trump would make up his mind in time and if he believes Russia was responsible for the efforts of 2016 and a threat to the future elections then he would act. Earlier on Sunday Donald Trump posted on his Twitter that called the “Russia probe a witch hunt, saying Democrats were using the Russian hacking allegations as an “excuse for a lost election”.

He further Tweeted that “As the phony Russian Witch Hunt continues, two groups are laughing at this excuse for a lost election taking hold, Democrats and Russians!”. In the response to his statements, the Democratic Senator Al Franken told CNN What can you say? It’s just bizarre.”
