CNN’s Jim Sciutto said Monday that President Donald Trump refuses to believe the Russians meddled in the 2016 election because he built his own version of reality.
“The president is creating his own reality here and defending his own reality and is clearly still able to hire aides who are willing to defend that same reality that contradicts what the intelligence community has assessed here,” the chief national security correspondent said.
“Keep in mind one of the arguments the have used, well those were Obama appointees, the Clappers of the world, who were in charge when the judgment was made,” Sciutto continued. “We saw Dan Coats there, he is President Trump’s senior most intelligence official in the country who said there is no dissent.”
“And yet the president continues to stick to this — we just don’t know inside his head why he continues to stick to that at the expense of the credibility, really, of his own intelligence agencies.”
