US President-elect Donald Trump called the actions of the current US administration towards Russia over cyber attacks a "witch hunt". In particular, he said this during a telephone interview with New York Times, which, according to the newspaper, took place a few hours before the special intelligence briefing for President-elect on the cyber attacks against the Democratic Party.

“China, relatively recently, hacked 20 million government names,” he said, referring to the breach of computers at the Office of Personnel Management in late 2014 and early 2015. “How come nobody even talks about that? This is a political witch hunt.” Trump claimed.

“With all that being said, I don’t want countries to be hacking our country,” Mr. Trump said. “They’ve hacked the White House. They’ve hacked Congress. We’re like the hacking capital of the world.”

“They got beaten very badly in the election. I won more counties in the election than Ronald Reagan,” Mr. Trump said during an eight-minute telephone conversation. “They are very embarrassed about it. To some extent, it’s a witch hunt. They just focus on this.” Donald Trump answered the question about Russian cyber attacks.
