President Donald Trump, who is in Germany for the G20 summit, said “everyone” there is talking about former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s refusal to turn over a Democratic National Committee (DNC) email server after it got hacked.

Trump’s comments come days after Podesta distanced himself from the DNC and said it was the fault of the FBI that the server was never turned over.

“If anything its on the FBI that didn’t come forward and really inform the DNC about what was going until ong after essentially the horse was out of the barn door,” Podesta said during the Fox News interview.

DNC spokeswoman Adrienne Watson reiterated Podesta’s argument in a Friday tweet. She pointed out that Podesta never led the DNC, implying he would not have been responsible for coordinating with intelligence agencies investigating the Russian hacking of the organization.

Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday in what was the two leaders’ first face-to-face meeting since Trump took office.
