During a Sunday morning interview on CNN, Tim Kaine threw doubt on the veracity of hacked emails published by WikiLeaks.

“I don’t think we can dignify documents dumped by WikiLeaks and just assume they are all accurate and true. Anybody who hacks in to get documents is completely capable of manipulating them,” the vice presidential candidate said.

“Right, but Senator, I mean first of all, are you disputing the accuracy of this?” asked “State of the Nation” host Jake Tapper. “Did Hillary Clinton not say to these Brazilian bankers that she has this dream.”

“Jake, I have no way of knowing the accuracy of documents dumped by this hacking organization,” Kaine responded. “But I think it is really important that this hacking has been connected, much of the hacking, has been connected to the Russian government.”
