The 70-year-old businessman blamed Democrats for putting out the media reports and said he did not believe they came from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
He questioned whether the CIA was behind the reports that indicated Moscow wanted him in the White House. “I think the Democrats are putting it out,” he said in the interview.

Trump’s dismissal was perhaps aimed at squashing doubts about whether he won the November 8 election fairly.

Russian officials have denied all accusations of interference in the US election.

Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham joined Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer and Jack Reed on Sunday in expressing concern over possible Russian interference in a US presidential election and said they will work together to investigate such cyber attacks.

Recent reports of Russian interference in our election should alarm every American,” they said in the statement. “This cannot become a partisan issue. The stakes are too high for our country.”
