Hillary Campaign Manager Robby Mook blamed the Russians for leaking the DNC emails the week before the Democrat Convention. Mook said the Russians were trying to help Donald Trump.
Wikileaks released nearly 20,000 hacked emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee officials on Friday.
The documents were released just days before the Democratic Convention in Philadelphia.
The hacked emails revealed the DNC’s hatred for Bernie Sanders and his movement.
The Examiner reported:
Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager said Russian hackers stole tens of thousands of emails from the Democratic National Committee as a means of helping Donald Trump in the election.
Robby Mook, during an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” told host George Stephanopoulos that although Russians had claimed responsibility for hacking the party’s internal servers and stealing the information, their motive may not have been just to help their state leaders.
“It’s troubling that some experts are now telling us that this was done by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump,” Mook said without naming his sources. The Clinton aide claimed the Republican nominee has become “pro-Russian” since last week, indicating he may be on board with the Russians who oversaw the hack.
