Lindsey Graham criticized the new U.S. President Donald Trump for his doubts about Russian hackers’ interference with presidential election held in the country in November 2016.

He also believes that after the American intelligence services make their statement over the fact tomorrow, on 6 January, all Donald Trump’s hesitations about it will disappear.

Mr. Graham has not revealed information on additional anti-Russian sanctions yet and what exactly they are to be aimed at.

It is to be recalled that on 29 December 2016, the Obama administration introduced additional anti-Russian sanctions caused by alleged cyber-attacks carried out by Russian hackers during presidential election in the U.S. held in November 2016.

As it was reported by Russkiy Mir website, giving his interview to the ABC channel, one of the members of Donald Trump transition team claimed that they did not find the introduced sanctions objective and considered the possibility of their lifting.
