Sean Spicer is Trump's spokesperson. He was interviewed and asked what he thought about the allegations that Russia influenced the elections.

But he did not attempt to answer the question; instead, he spun an entirely different argument about Hilary influencing the election.

"Why aren't we talking about the power, other influences on the election? Why aren't we talking about Hillary Clinton getting debate questions ahead of time?" He said. "That's a pretty strong attempt to influence an election. Somebody is giving her the debate issues and the answers of an election. No, no, no. It's not hey. We haven't, no one's asking these problems."

Spencer was referring to the WikiLeak reports that Hillary had received the debates ahead of time, and even the answers. But as many experts pointed out this was not excellent info, it was leaked by Russian intelligence, creating a wild wind of legitimacy and credibility.

The CIA has admitted that without a doubt, Russia was involved in influencing the election. They trusted the hacking back to computer keyboards with letters only found in the Russian language.

Trump said that he was not entirely convinced that it was the Russians because he knows something that others don't.

Obama has already imposed sanctions on Russia and kicked out 35 Russian diplomats from the country. The world is still waiting to see how Putin retaliates. He is not known to let anything as calm. But perhaps this time he may stand down with Obama has less than two weeks in office.
