Trump denies CIA Russia meddling report

breakPresident-elect Donald Trump has said he “doesn’t believe” a CIA report that concluded Russian hackers tried to sway the US election in his favour.
In an interview with Fox News being broadcast later, he blamed Democrats for “ridiculous” news reports that said Russia was behind the hacks.
Russian officials have repeatedly denied the hacking accusations.
Senior Republicans have now joined Democrats in calling for a full investigation into the intelligence.
Republican Senator John McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said in a joint statement with top Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer and others that the CIA’s report “should alarm every American”.
