The Washington Post called on President-elect Donald Trump and Republicans to stop trying to hush up the truth about the election hacking.

“Some Republicans — including President-elect Donald Trump — appear to be entirely unconcerned about the strong evidence that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign in order to create uncertainty in the presidential race, or tilt it toward Mr. Trump,” the Post said in an editorial.

“Either that, or they are determined to bury the story of an unprecedented intrusion into American democracy by a hostile foreign power. There’s no other way to understand a new set of tweets by Mr. Trump, or the sandbagging by Republican leaders of proposals for a thorough investigation.”

“Why does Mr. Trump give Mr. Assange more weight than the U.S. intelligence agencies?” The Post asked. “Why is the president-elect not outraged at the possibility of foreign intervention in the American political process?”

The Post accused Trump of denigrating the professionals in the U.S. intelligence agencies in another tweet.

“What’s truly strange is Mr. Trump’s antipathy toward the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies,” the Post said.

And the newspaper added: “If the briefing is held as planned on Friday, Mr. Trump would do well to listen.”
