NEW YORK: President-elect Donald Trump has suggested that somebody other than Russians hacked the US elections.
He said that he had “unrevealed” information about alleged Russian hacking during the presidential election and present new information next week.
Speaking briefly to reporters on his way to a New Year’s party in the US state of Florida, Trump responded to a query about the alleged hacking by saying, “I know things that other people don’t know” and “you will find out on Tuesday or Wednesday [January 3 or 4].”
Trump who is dismissing US reports about Russian hacking of 2016 elections — which he won in the electoral college, but lost in the popular vote count — it has intrigued the media here.
Trump also said that he still believes “somebody else” other than Russia could have carried out the hacking of emails of Democratic Party officials. He said he knew a lot about computer hacking and that it’s “a very hard thing to prove.”
Last week, the US government expelled 35 Russian diplomats and imposed sanctions against Russian security officials and agencies over the alleged hacking. US intelligence agencies have said they believe Moscow ordered the hacking in order to help Trump win the election.
