Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov calls the ODNI report a ‘witch hunt’ and says Moscow is tired of election hacking accusations.
(WASHINGTON, DC) Moscow has slammed the recent ODNI report which claims Russia hacked the US elections. The Kremlin spokesman said it was “reminiscent of a witch hunt,” adding that Moscow is “tired” of “amateurish” US hacking intelligence.
Moscow is “seriously tired of these accusations,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday. “It truly is reminiscent of a witch hunt.”
“This publication has not added any substance for comment. From our point of view, groundless accusations backed by nothing sound, fairly amateur, on an emotional level, which can hardly apply to highly-professional work of truly highly-qualified intelligence agencies," Peskov told reporters.
During a WikiLeaks press conference held through Periscope Monday, Julian Assange said on a scale of one to ten the ODNI report was a zero for its lack of evidentiary weight.
