WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Earlier on Friday, US media reported that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) allegedly concluded in a "secret" assessment that Russia meddled in the November elections.
"These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again,’" Trump’s team said in a Friday statement, as quoted by The Washington Post.
Russia has denied claims by US officials that it tried to meddle in the US presidential election. Russian officials have called the allegations absurd and an attempt to distract US voters from domestic issues.
