President-elect Donald Trump says he knows “things that other people don’t know” about Russia’s alleged hacking during the presidential election. Speaking to reporters outside his Mar-A-Lago estate while on his way to a New Year’s Eve party on Saturday night, Trump promised to disclose the information in a few days, saying “you will find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.” He noted that he still believes the hacking was carried out by “somebody else,” and not Russia. While the CIA concluded that a Russian hacking group was to blame for the election breaches, Trump once against cast doubt on that conclusion, saying computer hacking “is a very hard thing to prove.” “I just want them to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge,” he said. Trump has gone against the tide on the issue of Russia’s alleged hacking, repeatedly dismissing the accusations against Russia and saying it’s time to simply move on from the scandal. The Obama administration hit top Russian intelligence officials with sanctions over the hacking last week and expelled 35 diplomats, a move which some believe will serve as a test to determine where Trump’s loyalties lie.
