President-elect Donald Trump defamed the C.I.A and other American intelligence agencies after the C.I.A announced that Russian hackers had influenced the presidential campaign.

Trump, who will be relying on these institutions as the next commander in chief, dismissed the C.I.A assessment as “ridiculous.”

The President-elect dismissed the reports by citing another misguided intelligence assessment in 2002 and led the US to the Iraq war (the one that reported that the Iraqi leader, Saddam Hussein, had weapons of mass destruction).
