And we’re supposed to trust that everything coming out is legit?

Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s Gmail account was hacked by the same Russian intelligence-linked hackers that breached the DNC and the DCCC, researchers confirmed Thursday, spurring Clinton’s team to immediately lash out at Donald Trump over his ongoing reluctance to blame Moscow for the spate of election-related hacks.


The GOP nominee is now President Vladimir Putin’s “puppet,” said Clinton’s top foreign policy adviser Jake Sullivan, who added that the latest findings are proof that the Kremlin “is trying to help Donald Trump.”

“It’s time for Trump to tell the American people what he knew about these hacks and when he knew it,” Sullivan said.
Trump has repeatedly declined to directly blame Russia for the election season hacks that have targeted political organizations and senior officials.

“She has no idea whether it’s Russia, China or anyone else,” Trump said during Wednesday’s debate.
But based on new information, it now seems clear that Podesta unwittingly gave Russian hackers access to his Gmail account by clicking a Bitly link that redirected him to a fake Google login page, where he entered his credentials.
