President-elect Trump received the full classified intelligence briefing on Russian “interference” leading up to the November 8th, 2016 general election. Here is a link to the unclassified report by the Director of National Intelligence.
Soon after receiving the briefing the President-elect posted three tweets.
In a press release President-elect Trump went on to state:
“I had a constructive meeting and conversation with the leads of the Intelligence Community this afternoon. I have tremendous respect for the work and service done by the men and women of this community to our great nation.
While Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines. There were attempts to hack the Republican National Committee, but the RNC had strong hacking defenses and the hackers were unsuccessful.
Whether it is our government, organizations, associations or business we need to aggressively combat and stop cyberattacks. I will appoint a team to give me a plan within 90 days of taking office. The methods, tools and tactics we use to keep America safe should not be a public discussion that will benefit those who seek to do us harm.
Two weeks from today I will take the oath of office and America’s safety and security will be my number one priority.” [Emphasis added]
The real issue is cyberwarfare and the U.S. defensive and offensive strategy and tactics to combat it.
