Ex-CIA chief says Putin behind US hack

Former director of the CIA General Michael Hayden says the covert actions have been a victory for Russia, and Vladimir Putin was personally involved.

"I would put this in the win column as one of the most successful covert actions, covert influence programmes in the history of covert influence programmes," he says.

The Kremlin has denied any involvement and dismissed the allegations as "nonsense".
