Trump Adviser: 'Possibility' Trump Playing Media On Hacking

James Woolsey
A senior adviser to Donald Trump said Monday that the president-elect might be playing the media with some of his rhetoric about Russia's alleged interference in the U.S. election.

According to The Hill, Former CIA Director James Woolsey, who has been advising Trump on national security since September, said during an interview on CNN that Trump was "an expert at this kind of weaving around and attracting everybody's attention."

"You're saying he's playing us, in effect?" CNN's Jim Sciutto pressed.

"There’s a possibility that he is, a little bit,” Woolsey responded.

"Why not? He’s not interfering with anything. He’s not talking about anything classified,” Woolsey added.

"This is a behavioral mode that he has perfected. He has a point, which is that it is entirely possible to have various definitions of hacking."
