Even President Bush is saying publicly that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election. It is really sad that our president doesn't believe his own intelligence services.

George W Bush has said there is “pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled” in the 2016 US presidential election, forcefully rebutting Donald Trump’s denials that Moscow tried to affect the vote.

While never mentioning Trump by name, Bush, the US president from 2001 to 2009, appeared to be pushing back at Trump’s attempts to foster warmer relations with Russia.

The White House did not immediately comment on Bush’s remarks.

“There’s pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled,” Bush said at a talk in the United Arab Emirates. “Whether they affected the outcome is another question.”

He also said: “It’s problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results.”

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump win.

That's because admitting it happened may mean he isn't a legitimate president. That goes against every rule in the Trump playbook.

He won’t even admit he lost the popular vote and created a committee to investigate it.
