Donald Trump spoke to The New York Times this morning before his meeting with intelligence officials on the Russian hacking of DNC and John Podesta email accounts.
Trump told The Times the focus on Russia was a “political witch hunt”:
“China, relatively recently, hacked 20 million government names,” he said, referring to the breach of computers at the Office of Personnel Management in late 2014 and early 2015. “How come nobody even talks about that? This is a political witch hunt.”
