Russian cyber attacks 'major threat' to US

Russian cyber attacks pose a "major threat" to the United States, top US intelligence officials have told a congressional hearing.


The comments come despite scepticism from US President-elect Donald Trump about findings that Russia orchestrated hacking of the 2016 election.

Although Mr Trump has called himself a "big fan" of the intelligence community, he is heading for a conflict over the issue with Democrats and some fellow Republicans in Congress.

Many politicians are wary of Russia and distrust Mr Trump's praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and efforts to heal the rift between the US and Russia.
