Former top officials of the Central Intelligence Agency say Trump’s rejection of its assessment that Moscow hacked US political party computers and released data to tilt the vote in Trump’s favor could ultimately damage crucial US policy-making — unless relations between Trump and the agency can be smoothed over. Trump added insult to injury, they say, by both ridiculing the CIA and dismissing the need for the traditional daily presidential briefing from his top security advisors.
