Donald Trump's big reveal about Russian hacking could be pretty anticlimactic

President-elect Donald Trump won't reveal "anything that was privileged or was shared with him classified" when he makes his promised comments on Russian hacking this week, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer said Monday on CNN's New Day. Despite Trump's claims at a New Year's Eve celebration on Saturday that he'd reveal on Tuesday or Wednesday the things he knows that "other people don't know," Spicer said it's "not a question of necessarily revealing." "He's going to talk about his conclusions and where he thinks things stand," Spicer said, noting Trump will also "make sure people understand there's a lot of questions out there" in regards to Russian's involvement in cyber attacks ahead of the U.S. presidential election.

Spicer indicated that those lingering questions make it impossible to say how Trump would respond should a final intelligence report confirm Russia's involvement. "I know it's frustrating for you that we're doing it in a logical way," Spicer told CNN's Alisyn Camerota, who had a hard time believing Trump's team had not yet even considered a possible response. "But no, we're going to get all the information, get briefed properly and then make a decision. We're not going to put the cart before the horse."
