Congressman Peter King had some pretty strong words for media outlets and parts of the U.S. intel community in response to all the talk of Russian hacking.
After his meeting with President-elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower, King said “there is no CIA conclusion” yet, based on what he has heard (and not from reports in the media).
He said Russia’s goal was to create confusion in America and then made this charge:
“And right now, certain elements of the media, certain elements of the intelligence community and certain politicians are really doing the work of the Russians, because they’re creating this uncertainty over the election.”
On Fox News last night, King went so far as to say that there may be a “disinformation campaign” going on by some in the intel community or Congress to discredit Trump.
