President-elect Donald TrumpDonald TrumpRobert Gates says 'extreme polarization' is the greatest threat to US democracy Cassidy says he won't vote for Trump if he runs in 2024 Schiff says holding Bannon in criminal contempt 'a way of getting people's attention' MORE late Saturday said he will reveal new information in the next few days about alleged Russian hacking during the U.S. presidential election, saying he knows “things that other people don’t know.”

During brief remarks to reporters during a New Year’s Eve celebration at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., Trump repeated his skepticism of U.S. intelligence agencies’ assertions that Russia was behind the hacking.

“I just want them to be sure because it’s a pretty serious charge,” Trump said. “If you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong.”


“So I want them to be sure,” he added. “I think it’s unfair if they don’t know.”

Trump also said he knows “a lot” about hacking, saying it is a “very hard thing to prove.”

“So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”

Trump did not offer details when pressed about what he knows, saying only that, “You’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
