Skip to comments.Trump spokesman says there's still 'zero evidence' Russia influenced presidential election

Spicer told 'Fox & Friends' hosts that last week's cyber security memo from the FBI and Homeland Security Department is a 'how-to manual for the DNC' to 'improve their IT security'
'I think it's unfair if they don't know. And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be someone else,' Trump said at his oceanside Mar-a-Lago resort club in Florida.
'And I also know things that other people don't know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.'
Asked what his secret knowledge consists of, Trump said: 'You'll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.'
Spicer said Monday that the president-elect 'is privy to information that nobody else has' and 'what he is driving at is the fact that there doesn't seem to be conclusive evidence within the intelligence community.'
'There's an intelligence report that's due out later this week,' he added. 'And once that report is made final and the president-elect is briefed, then I think we'll have a better idea of what to make of the situation.'

I would suggest that Trump has sources around the world outside of US government channels.
Hussein, still a cunning liar.
The whole miserable lie was invented by American Leftists bitter that Trump won, and doing their best to lash out at him.
The fact that NO certifiable evidence has been put forth is proof these claims are BS. I don’t care if the CIA, FBI, DOJ and NSA swear to it - even McCain and Graham. It doesn’t matter. If they won’t provide CLEAR PROOF then all this hooha is BS, period.
MSMLSD: Who’re you going to believe? Your evidence to the contrary or our lying statements.
My understanding of the evidence at this point is that it is a list of companies that might have been involved in hacking, and that these companies sometimes do business with Russia.
If this ends up being “the evidence”, then it is laughable.
I simply don’t trust anything that has been infiltrated by liberal/neo-con/democrat/media minions, and that includes the entire US government apparatus.
I would say the intelligence community that is not subject to political pressure is going to make itself heard
I think leftists are all about lying. It’s all they really have.
I won’t trust any part of this government until the Trump administration has had enough time and resources to bring these ‘agents’ to account.
Chinese and Russian hackers have cracked into State Department and Pentagon computers and have vacuumed out all kinds of information, and Obama just shrugged.
But Podesta’s emails? Stop the presses! This is war!
My understanding is that Trump can assign duties as he wishes despite the rank of anyone in the government bureaucracy. There might be a long wait to fire them, but that doesn’t mean he can’t assign them to sort mail in the mailroom.
You have to be able to accept the Big Lie in order to muster any enthusiasm for the Marxist/Leninist orthodoxy.
They have been lying, rather successfully, for a hundred years. Almost the whole time that we have had a pretty centralized media, starting with the AP.
I agree. This is all such a joke. They pretend that Podesta didn’t succumb to phishing and that Hillary didn’t have an unsecured server.
What would be funny is if these companies involved all have Democrat leaning CEO’s. This is pathetic but scary in that the CIA, FBI and other federal agencies have been so politicized that all of them can’t be fully trusted anymore.
There are plenty of bathroom stalls where shelf desks can be installed and process, applications for SNAP cards with a pencil.
Probably the best “fake news” of 2016 was this assertion that the Russians somehow “hacked” the election results.
There is no possible way that the count in the election could possibly be affected from Moscow. It was and is possible to go through the office of the Secretary of State of each of the separate states of the United States, where the actual statewide tally of the votes is enumerated, and somehow hack THEIR separate computers, but this is not what was alleged.
Notable throughout this entire episode, is that neither John Podesta nor any other Democrat official, whose computer was allegedly hacked, that any of the information made public was ever FABRICATED by the Russians, but in fact, the information recovered was the text of the emails as written by the originators of this conspiracy within the Democrat party, and was acted upon accordingly.
Remember This is the SAME administration that had all it talking heads telling every reporter they could find after Benghazi 09-11-12 that the attacks were caused by a You Tube Video.
We know the 0 regime habitually lies for political gain. This is more of the same.
