Less than 24-hours before Donald Trump is set to announce his so-called knowledge of Russia hacking, one of his top intelligence advisers has quit his team.
Former CIA director James Woolsey will no longer serve as an adviser to the President-elect or be part of the transition team as he was reportedly "excluded" from talks.
Mr Woolsey’s spokesman, Jonathan Franks, said that his departure will be "effective immediately".
...Mr Woolsey also dismissed the importance of the CIA’s report that concluded Russia was behind the attack.
"We may see as time goes on an improved technology for sorting things out in the hacking world, but it is probably not always a good idea to say in these days and times that we know it was Russia, it was only Russia," he told CNN.
"No, I'd be a little more cautious than that... I think the Russians were in there, but it doesn't mean other people weren't."
