Trump questioned the prevailing notion that Russia has been hacking U.S. entities — despite 17 U.S. intelligence agencies concluding that top Russian officials helped orchestrate cyberattacks against the Democratic National Committee and members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign — and he also seemed to question the validity of such agencies overall.
Who could have seen that coming?
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 somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.
I wouldn’t mind seeing some proof. Back before the Iraq war the proof put forward by the Bush administration seemed skimpy.
