FALSE CLAIM: Reuters claimed that the CIA had identified Russian officials who fed the material hacked from the Democrats to Wikileaks.
TRUTH: To date, no evidence suggests that the Russians hacking the U.S. elections was true or that Putin had ordered them to do so. The claim is a scheme to try and derail Trump’s goal to improve relationships with Russia.

FALSE CLAIM: Officials, who wish to remain anonymous, said that the Central Intelligence Agency and several others have concluded that Russia hacked the elections to make it for Trump.
TRUTH: The claim has not been backed by credible evidence, nor were they willing to disclose the identities of their sources. It might as well be a speculation that is only believed because the media keeps pushing it – even if no one would say who the source is.
