Former White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said Saturday that the Russian hacking report declassified on Friday "should be a warning" to President-elect Donald Trump should he try to seek improved relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Fleischer, who served former President George W. Bush, posted his thoughts on Twitter:

 

The report by U.S. intelligence agencies said that Putin and his government hacked into the Democratic National Committee and other party operatives to try to undermine Democrat Hillary Clinton and help Trump.

Putin and his agencies "aspired to help President-elect Trump's election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him," the report said.

"All three agencies agree with this judgment," according to the findings. "CIA and FBI have a high confidence in this judgment; NSA has moderate confidence."

President Barack Obama ordered the report, which was presented to him on Thursday.
Trump responded by slamming the report as a "political witch hunt."

He also called for a congressional investigation into the leak of the report to NBC News on Thursday before his briefing the next day.
