CONSPIRACY THEORY

“Can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and WE tried to play the Russia/CIA card. It would be called conspiracy theory!” he wrote.

2ND TWEET

A second tweet said, “Unless you catch ‘hackers’ in the act, it is very hard to determine who was doing the hacking. Why wasn’t this brought up before election?”

U.S. DID ACCUSE RUSSIA

The U.S. government did accuse Russia of trying to interfere with the election process a full month prior to the Nov. 8 vote with a campaign of cyber-attacks against Democratic Party organizations. A statement from the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security said the hacks could have been authorized “only by Russia’s senior-most officials.”

TRUMP

Trump had addressed the suspected Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee during a debate with rival Hillary Clinton by saying the intrusion also could have been carried out by China or “somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds.”

It is hard to say which is worse – Russians interfering in presidential election or the winner taking to Twitter to air his grieves.
