Despite Promise, Trump Divulges No New Election Hacking Details:
The time that Donald Trump promised to reveal what no one else knew about the hacking of the Democratic Party has come and gone.

On New Year's Eve, Trump said that he knows "things that other people don't know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation."

Pressed by a reporter for details, Trump said, "You'll find out Tuesday or Wednesday."

But as Wednesday came to a close, Trump hadn't revealed any more details about the hacking of his campaign opponents, admitting only — in a tweet — that "somebody hacked the DNC" and alleging that the Democratic National Committee had weak cyberdefenses.

On Tuesday, however, Trump continued to taunt the U.S. intelligence community about its assessment that Russia was behind the cyberattacks, tweeting, "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

But there was no delay, according to U.S. officials; the briefing was always scheduled for Friday. [...]

Regardless, U.S. officials said Assange doesn't know what he's talking about.

"There's no way that Assange would have any idea who was behind dropping this information off," said Matt Olsen, a former director of the National Counterterrorism Center and an ABC News contributor. "The Russian intelligence services are clearly capable of hiding their tracks."
US spy chiefs see 'multifaceted' Russian bid to disrupt election:
US spy chiefs said Thursday that the hacking of Democratic Party computers was just one part of a multifaceted campaign by Russia to disrupt the American presidential election.

In a closely-watched Senate hearing, top intelligence officials presented a united front as they reiterated their conclusion that Moscow interfered with last year's campaign and that its cyber-meddling poses a "major threat" to the United States -- findings that President-elect Donald Trump has so far refused to accept.

"This was a multifaceted campaign. So the hacking was only one part of it, and it also entailed classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news," Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate hearing.
