Russia hacking: US intelligence chief hits back at Trump 'disparagement' of findings

The departing head of US intelligence has publicly defended his analysts against attacks by Donald Trump following their conclusion that Russia interfered in the November election.

“There’s a difference between skepticism and disparagement,” said James Clapper, stepping into an extraordinary public dispute between the incoming president and the intelligence agencies Trump will soon control.

Clapper said US intelligence analysts “stand more resolutely” than ever behind their conclusion of “Russian interference in our electoral process”.

“Russia has clearly assumed an even more aggressive cyber posture,” said James Clapper, who described the assault on the 2016 election as “multifaceted”.

He added: “Hacking was only one part of it. It also entailed classical propaganda, disinformation and fake news.”

Glenn Greenwald: Mainstream U.S. Media is Culpable for Disseminating Fake & Deceitful News on Russia

We are joined by Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and one of the founding editors of The Intercept. His latest article is headlined "WashPost Is Richly Rewarded for False News About Russia Threat While Public Is Deceived." In it, he writes, "Any story that bolsters the prevailing D.C. orthodoxy on the Russia Threat, no matter how dubious, is spread far and wide. And then, as has happened so often, when the story turns out to be false or misleading, little or nothing is done to correct the deceitful effects."

AMY GOODMAN: That’s WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Fox News. Glenn Greenwald, your latest article for The Intercept is headlined "WashPost Is Richly Rewarded for False News About Russia Threat While Public Is Deceived." So, could you comment on what Assange said and your own findings regarding mainstream media coverage of alleged Russian cyber-attacks?
GLENN GREENWALD: So let’s focus on the extraordinary behavior of The Washington Post for the moment. They have produced two of the most humiliating debacles in American journalism over the last several years. And these two humiliations have taken place just within the last six weeks, both of which were about completely fictitious and fabricated claims about the threat posed by Vladimir Putin and Russia.

The evidence will determine if he's right. It's looking more and more like he is. That's gotta burn the Trumpites. Now it looks like he wants the American taxpayer and not the Mexicans to build his wall. Ouch! That's gonna cost a bundle. More debt or more taxes....I'm betting both with Trump. He's gonna put Justine's fiscal mismanagement to shame
