Clinton Camp Accuses Russian Hackers Of Helping Trump Expose Emails

Is Russia interfering in the United States' election? Watch Clinton’s campaign manager explain how the DNC thinks so in this clip from CNN.

On Sunday, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager told CNN’s “State of the Union” that Russian hackers leaked DNC emails in order to help Donald Trump win the election.

Campaign manager Randy Mook expressed the utmost concern over the email hack, which exposed the Democrat National Committee’s favoritism toward Clinton over Bernie Sanders. On Friday, the leaked emails showed DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, along with other staff members, disparaging Sanders. Wasserman Shultz will step down as chair in the wake of the scandal.

Mook told CNN’s Jake Tapper that "Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole these emails, and other experts are now saying that the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of actually helping Donald Trump."

Although Mook didn’t explain just who these “experts” are, the accusation may not be a far cry from the truth. Then again, maybe not. Without providing any evidence of his knowledge of who leaked the emails, or what their intention was, it’s a tough call.

But Trump is known to have significant financial ties to Russia and has praised Putin throughout his campaign. Likewise, Putin has endorsed him for president.
