Trump on Russian TV has ‘no opinion’ about Putin bragging that hacking DNC was ‘public service’
Trump was interviewed by Larry King, who did a very good job of drawing him out.
King had two questions about Putin. First, does Trump agree with Putin’s recent comment that the hacking of the Democratic National Committee was a “public service”?
“I don’t have any opinion on it. I don’t know anything about it. I don’t know who hacked. I’m not sure. You tell me. Who hacked? Who did the hacking? But I have absolutely no opinion on that.” Trump said.
Second, what does he make of reports from U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia orchestrated a covert operation to disrupt the U.S. election?
“I think it’s probably unlikely. I think maybe the Democrats are putting that out,” Trump said. “I think it’s pretty unlikely, but who knows? I hope that if they are doing something, I hope that somebody’s going to be able to find out, so they can end it, because that would not be appropriate at all.”
