The diplomats were ordered to leave the US within 72 hours, after they were accused of being Russian spies. President-elect Trump is sowing discord within his party over doubts about Russian involvement.

The 35 Russian diplomats accused by the United States of being spies and ordered to leave the US were flown out of the country on Sunday amid a growing rift in the Republican Party over the expulsion order by President Barack Obama.

On Sunday, a top aide to President-elect Donald Trump said the Obama administration may have overreacted in ordering the expulsion of the Russian diplomats, but on Capitol Hill Republican senators were saying the White House Response did not go far enough.

Trump's chief spokesman, Sean Spicer, said during a Sunday public affairs program that the president-elect will be asking questions of US intelligence agencies this week regarding their conclusions that Russian intelligence hacked into the emails of the Democratic National Committee and a top aide to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"One of the questions that we have is why the magnitude of this? I mean, you look at 35 people being expelled, two sites being closed down, the question is: Is that response in proportion to the actions taken?" Spicer said. "Maybe it was; maybe it wasn't, but you have to think about that."
