West Palm Beach, Florida (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump said Saturday he has information that others lack and promised to reveal his knowledge this week, reiterating again his doubts that Russia was behind cyber-meddling in the US election.
Speaking to reporters ahead of an 800-person New Year's Eve bash at his Mar-a-Lago estate, a tuxedoed Trump maintained that another culprit aside from Russia could have been behind the tampering.
"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," he said.
Asked to describe what undisclosed information he knew, Trump said, "You'll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday."
just want them to be sure, because it's a pretty serious charge, and I want them to be sure. And if you look at the weapons of mass destruction, that was a disaster, and they were wrong," Trump said, referencing failed intelligence in the lead-up to the Iraq War as a reason for skepticism.
Trump on Russia hacking: We should move on
"I think it's unfair if they don't know," he said. "And I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove."
Trump has repeatedly cast aside a US intelligence assessment announced in early October that Moscow was behind the hacking, despite already receiving classified intelligence briefings on the matter. He's also praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him smart this week for withholding reciprocal sanctions on the US.

He did not say it was another country, he said it was another culprit.
There have been reports that the source of the leaks were from inside the DNC.

IF he has that information, wouldnt that be information he probably SHOULDNT be telling the public? Could he not be compromising an investigation into whoever he thinks is doing it? Is he breaching intel protocols?
