Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tweeted Sunday about a secret CIA report that determined Russia intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help Donald Trump win.
“Russia’s getting out of hand? So says the defeated,” Palin tweeted, appearing to question the CIA report.
Her skepticism echoed President-elect Donald Trump’s, who called the Washington Post’s report on the Russian interference “another excuse” from Democrats to explain their loss.
Palin piled on in her tweet, adding, “Remember I can keep an eye on them from here,” an allusion to a 2008 interview in which she said her time in Alaska gave her insight into Russian actions.
“They’re our next-door neighbors,” she told ABC as the vice presidential nominee. “And you can actually see Russia, from land, here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.”
Russia’s getting out of hand? So says the defeated. Not to worry… remember I can keep an eye on them from here. https://t.co/jQBCDV5O3W

But a bipartisan group of senators said earlier Sunday that the reports should “alarm every American,” and called for an investigation.
