The absolutely incredible claim from the Central Intelligence Agency that Russian hackers somehow put Donald Trump over the top in the election is falling apart.

Both the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which oversees all the U.S. intelligence agencies, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reject the CIA’s analysis.

And now Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) just said on Fox News Channel a few minutes ago that the Central Intelligence Agency is refusing to hand over whatever evidence it may have about Russian wrongdoing.

The CIA has a long track record both for lying and breathtaking incompetence

“It’s almost as if people in the intelligence community are carrying out a disinformation campaign against the president-elect of the United States. It’s absolutely disgraceful.”

King, by the way, is a member of the Homeland Security Committee and chairman of the Sub-Committee on (Counterterrorism and Intelligence). He also serves on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Could it be the CIA — which employs more than a few Trump haters — doesn’t actually have any evidence? If they have proof they should cough it up. But they refuse.

Instead, CIA officials keep leaking to the media.

These people can’t be trusted. The CIA has a long track record both for lying and breathtaking incompetence.

This talk of a Russian conspiracy to hack U.S. computer networks to put Trump in the White House has always been difficult to believe.

No publicly available evidence whatsoever

President-elect Trump dismisses the allegations as “ridiculous,” accusing the Democrats of fabricating the claim to rationalize away the shellacking their party received in Nov. 8 elections. “I don’t believe it,” he said days ago. “I think it’s just another excuse.”

So there is still no publicly available evidence whatsoever that Russians engaged in cyberwarfare specifically in an effort to have an impact on the U.S. election.

All we have so far are unproven assertions reportedly made by figures in the U.S. intelligence community.

It’s not enough.
