The U.S. intelligence community hasn't been clear about Russian interference in the presidential election, and should "make the case" to the American people, incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday.

In an interview on Fox News Sunday,  Priebus said lacking that clarity, "all of the people that are spinning the intelligence reports are doing it to delegitimize the election results."

"If there is this conclusive opinion among all of these intelligence agencies, then they should issue a report or they should stand in front of a camera and make the case," Priebus said. He added that he believes President-elect Donald Trump would accept the conclusions in a report.

"I think that these guys should be straight with the American people and come out and say it," he said. "I don't think they've been clear about it."

Both the FBI and CIA are reportedly in agreement that Russia meddled in the White House race to help elect Trump. But Priebus said there's no evidence that the outcome of the election was changed as a result of leaked emails hacked from the private account of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta.

Democrats "need to face the reality they lost the election… or continuing to raise issues," he said, adding: "People didn't like the product, that's why Hillary Clinton lost."
