00:24  Trump cites Assange claim about Russia hacking:  

Gearing up for a high-profile briefing on claims that Russia hacked Democratic officials during last year’s election, President-elect Donald Trump is apparently taking the word of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over that of US intelligence officials who will brief him.

“Julian Assange said ‘a 14 year old could have hacked Podesta’ – why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

John Podesta was the Hillary Clinton campaign chairman whose emails were released by WikiLeaks during the campaign, part of an effort that U.S. intelligence officials attributed to the Russians, perhaps in order to help Trump win the election.
