President Trump is a victim of the liberals and liberal media. US President Donald Trump remains unconvinced that Russia attempted to influence the 2016 election, his new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said on Sunday. "He basically said to me, 'Hey you know, this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn't do it,'" Scaramucci said of a recent conversation he'd had with the President about alleged Russian interference. Prior to Trump's inauguration, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released an unclassified report showing the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency all concluded the Russian government attempted to influence the election to hurt Hillary Clinton and help Trump.
Scaramucci, speaking on CNN's "State of the Union," suggested Trump does not yet accept the conclusion of the intelligence community and questioned the media's pursuit of the story, saying it tarnished Trump's victory in November. "The mainstream media position on this, that they interfered in the election," Scaramucci said. "It actually in his mind, what are you guys suggesting? You're going to delegitimize his victory?"
Scaramucci said he intended to review the intelligence
community's evidence once he had his security clearance and pledged to
give Trump his personal thoughts on the conclusions. He said Trump would
make up his own mind in time and that if Trump believed Russia was responsible
for the 2016 efforts and a threat to future elections, he would act.
"A person that's going to be super, super tough on Russia is President
Donald J. Trump," Scaramucci said.
