Stephen Colbert thinks it’s disturbing that President-elect Donald Trump is still contradicting US intelligence findings that Russia was behind the hacks on the Democratic Party during the presidential campaign.
"One little shadow hanging over the inauguration is the whole ‘Russia chose our president’ thing," Colbert said during his opening monologue on Wednesday’s episode of "The Late Show." "Our entire intelligence community says that Russia hacked Clinton’s campaign, but Trump doesn’t buy it."
In fact, Trump has publicly supported the opinion of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump repeated Assange’s statement that "a 14 year old could have hacked" the Clinton campaign.
Julian Assange said "a 14 year old could have hacked Podesta" – why was DNC so careless? Also said Russians did not give him the info!

But Colbert primarily took offense at another tweet by Trump in which he clearly showed his mistrust of the US intelligence agencies’ findings on the Russian hacking.
