Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, suggested on Sunday that the Democratic National Committee was hacked by the Russians in order to help Donald Trump become president.
In the wake of almost 20,0000 emails being released by WikiLeaks, Mook told host of ABCs “This Week” George Stephanopoulos, “What’s disturbing about this entire situation is that experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke into the DNC, took all these e-mails, and now are leaking them out through these websites.” (RELATED: Leaked Emails Show DNC Officials Planned Anti-Trump Protests)
“Obviously they have to determine what’s accurate, what’s been doctored, what hasn’t been doctored. And it’s troubling that some experts are telling us this was done by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump,” Mook said. (RELATED: Wikileaks Releases Nearly 20,000 Hacked DNC Emails)
“For the purpose of helping Donald Trump,” an amazed Stephanopoulos replied.
“That’s what some experts are saying,” Mook replied.
“Is that what you believe?” Stephanopoulos asked.
“Well, I don’t know. The experts need to tell us that,” Mook said.
