Donald Trump’s Denial Of Russian Hack Has Taken a Dangerous Turn

In another indication that Donald Trump is a danger to our democracy, the president-elect, yet again, mocked the intelligence community and dismissed their assertion that Russia interfered with the election to help him defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by sending his team to disseminate what sounds like Russian propaganda on the Sunday shows.

Echoing Vladimir’s Puting calls upon the U.S. intel community to “show proof” of the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 elections, Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus said Sunday that the president-elect doesn’t necessarily believe the U.S. intelligence agencies and dared the CIA and FBI to show their evidence.

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Reince Priebus called the U.S. Intel agencies to issue an official report together laying out all the facts and showing they share the same findings.

Last week, all the U.S. Intel agencies unanimously announced that they agree with the CIA report determining that Russia interfered with the election to help elect Donald Trump.

On Sunday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for a select committee to investigate any Russian meddling in the election. “There’s no doubt they were interfering,” McCain said. “The question now is how much, what damage was done, and what should the United States of America do. So far we’ve been totally paralyzed.”

But that doesn’t stop Trump, who has refused to take intel briefings, from trashing the Intelligence community in an effort to cover-up the unprecedented breach by the Kremlin.

In his initial response to the report, Trump tweeted: “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.” he tweeted. Now his team is reciting Putin’s propaganda in the U.S. media.

Trump’s stance has created a rift between himself and several top Republicans who say Russia’s interference needs to be fully investigated.
