Kremlin: U.S. report on Russian hacking 'unfounded,' 'amateurishly emotional'

Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, has dismissed U.S. intelligence reports alleging the Kremlin interfered with the U.S. election as "absolutely unfounded" and "amateurishly emotional."

Peskov said the conclusion by the CIA, which was endorsed by the FBI and 15 other intelligence agencies, was "already reminiscent of a witch-hunt." The CIA also said it's very likely that high-level Russian government officials, including Putin, authorized the hacking.

"The absolutely unfounded accusations sound at a rather amateurishly emotional level that can be hardly applied to a highly professional work of high-class special services," Peskov said on Monday. "We still don't know what is in fact and what data those who make such unfounded accusations have."
