Trump says investigation should go on over possible Russian hacking, scoffs at idea of sanctions for cyberattacks

On the continuing federal investigations into Russian hacking during the U.S. election, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, during his Florida visit, said intelligence officials ”should do the best they can, figure it all out,” Business Insider reports.

That comment is a departure from the president-elect`s claims that the allegations against Russia — made by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Director of National Intelligence, the CIA, and affirmed by the FBI — were nothing more than partisan politics, according to Business Insider.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a former 2016 Republican presidential candidate, accused Russia of attacking his campaign operations also — and said Russian President Vladimir Putin should face ”crippling sanctions” for it.

Trump scoffed at Graham`s assertion: ”I don`t know what he`s doing. I haven`t spoken to Senator Graham … as you know he ran against me.”

Trump continued: ”I think we ought to get on with our lives. I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what is going on.”

  1. Graham is correct. I believe that the Russians need to be taught a harsh lesson.
