President-elect Donald Trump accepts the U.S. intelligence community's conclusion that Russia engaged in cyberattacks affecting the U.S. presidential election and may take actions in response, his incoming chief of staff said Sunday.Reince Priebus said Trump believes Russia was behind the intrusions into the Democratic Party organizations, though he did not clarify whether the president-elect agreed that the hacks were directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.A U.S. intelligence report released last week said Putin directed a sophisticated influence campaign including cyberattacks to denigrate Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and support Trump.In a statement Friday after receiving a briefing from leaders of the U.S. intelligence agencies, Trump did not refer specifically to Russia's role in the presidential campaign.Two senior Republican senators urged Trump to punish Russia in response to U.S. intelligence agencies' conclusion that Putin personally directed efforts aimed at influencing the election.
