5:35 pm
"i know a lot about hacking. and hacking is a very hard thing to prove. so it could be somebody else. and i also know things that other people don't know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation." trump refusing to elaborate about what insider information he has.only promising to reveal more after his meeting later this week with intelligence officials. incoming press secretary sean spicer, though, tempering expectations about what the president-elect might make public. sean spicer: "he's going to talk about his conclusions and where he thinks things stand. he's not going to reveal anything that was privileged or shared with him classified. spicer also questioning whether the sanctions, the trump team previously called "symbolic," were overblown. the obama administration expelled 35 russian diplomats .and shuttered two russian compounds on long island and in maryland. to retaliate against alleged russian interference in the election. candidate trump certainly acknowledged, and even seemed to egg on russian hackers during the election - inviting them to break in to hillary clinton's
