Clinton aide Robby Mook: Russians hacked DNC emails to help Donald Trump

by Bradford Richardson - The Washington Times  |  published on July 25, 2016

An aide to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says “Russian state actors” leaked Democratic National Committee emails on the eve of the party’s convention in order to help Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“What’s disturbing to us is experts are telling us Russian state actors broke into the DNC, stole these emails, and other experts are now saying the Russians are releasing these emails for the purpose of helping Donald Trump,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I don’t think it’s coincidental that these emails were released on the eve of our convention here.”

The emails, released by WikiLeaks last week, show top DNC officials conspiring to undermine Mrs. Clinton’s primary rival, Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders.

Mr. Mook suggested there was a tie between the release of the emails and pro-Russia sentiment echoing from the Republican National Convention.

He pointed to Mr. Trump’s comments that the United States should not necessarily comes to the defense of its NATO allies in the event of an attack from Russia.

    Clinton’s campaign manager is going to try to blame everyone for these emails. The fact is the Democrat Party rigged the system in favor of one of the candidates. Rather than Mr. Mook worrying about Russia the Democrat Party and the Clinton campaign should have acted honestly and ethically.

    Like most things coming from corrupt Hillary, this whole Russian plot is nothing but a fabrication designed to distract us from the fact that the Democrat Party picked their nominee before the voting ever began.

    If the Russians were able to hack the Democrat Party’s email I can only wonder what they learned when they hacked Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s email. It is unlikely we will ever know what all Russia learned due to Hillary’s hacked email server.

      It’s probably why they knew about the ‘secret’ base in syr-ia, and bombed it.

      I wonder how it is that they couldn’t seem to figure out whether her private server was hacked during the ‘big’ investigation, but now with this, not only are they absolutely sure these emails were hacked, but they are absolutely sure it was by the Russians, and they are absolutely sure the reason was to help Trump. I guess they just don’t realize that there are millions of us out here who are not stupid.

      • justinwachin

        Hillary is hoping there are enough stupid people in America to elect her president.

    If the Russians were able to access the DNC computers, then they were also able to access all the e-mails on Hillary’s personal computer. If they really want to help Trump why not release those e-mails including those which she deleted and scrubbed. I hope that they do have those e-mails and that they will release them. Who knows?

  • Elaine

    It doesn’t bother Hillary that she orchestrated and was in collusion with the DNC to completely undermine the campaign of a competitor. It doesn’t bother Hillary that she knows it was the Russians who hacked these emails. The only thing that bothers her is that all of her own indiscretions and underhandedness are “being used against her” and that it’s “so unfair”. Excuse me??

    Personally I believe we have two of the lowest life forms running for Prez in BOTH Parties!!! Just pcik one!!!!

    This is nothing compared to Huma Albedin having all emails to Clinton’s server. Huma Abedin’s mother Saleha Mahmood Albedin, is a top leader of the Muslam Brotherhood in Saudia Arabia. All of Hillary’s emails could have been sent to all countries in the world. Especially to Huma’s mother. Let’s make no mistake, every one in the world we do not want to know USA top secret DO. Thanks HILLARY

    Weren’t these the same people telling there was no way to know who or if her email private unsecured server was hacked? How can they be so sure that Russia hacked the DNC servers, but can’t tell what happened on her server?

  • Smitch

    The Russians just have stooped and are following the Demorats playbook & procedures!

  • RufusVonDufus

    Mook appears to be a moron! Can’t wait till two or three weeks before the election when the “Russians?” release all of Hillary’s classified emails she sent from an unsecured server. Maybe then they will finally blame themselves.

    • reggie

      Blame themselves? Surely you jest.

  • ADRoberts

    Why would the Russians try to help Trump? For sure, they have a cake walk when Clinton is in charge. She has NO BACKBONE at all and would just keep trying to do another “RESET” BUTTON. LOL
    No, Russia would have it much easier to walk over America if Clinton were in charge. lShe only attacks Christians and conservatives.

      They got what they wanted, 20% of our uranium. He knows she’s a loose cannon, he knows she’s a sore os puppet. Russia has an international arrest warrant for him. She has too many masters, many of whom are in conflict.

      • Elaine

        As I understand it, this uranium lies in great part beneath the Bundy ranch, which was the scene of that standoff involving the (crooked) Bureau of Land Management. That explains why they wanted that land so badly.

        • reggie

          Yes I think you’re right. That’s slimy reid. Also his son rory wanted part of it for a chinese company, enn, to supposedly manufacture solar panels. By law, federal land cannot be sold to other countries, or other citizens, so rory was the go-between. Also, it was on the path of a new high way. greeleygazette com/press/?p=2661

    There’s a world of difference between “hacked the emails to help Trump” and “released the emails to help Trump.” Not much question about the latter, but the former? They’ve probably been monitoring her emails as long as she’s been sending them, well before the name “Donald Trump” became a political issue. They probably hack his, too. It’s why information requiring the highest security is delivered by courier, not the internet. Unless you’re Hillary.

  • Mary

    Well Hillary is a buddy of all these foreign countries since they all sent her millions, if she had thought of something like that first against the Republicans I’m sure she would have used it since she has SO MUCH POWER. They probably hacked her great server and got the info, just glad who ever did it, good for them, may be this will do some good against the untouchable monster. Good for Putin, he’s on the ball. SHE JUST CAN’T STAND ANY DIRTY TRICKS AGAINST HER, SHE JUST DOES THEM NOT RECIEVE THEM, ISN’T FUN IS IT kILLARY?????

      This is a liberal ploy to change the subject. Their running scared right now since Trump is going ahead in the polls. They know I’f Trump wins people are going to jail including Hillary. It’s only going to get worse if Trump maintains any lead , the liberal will become more desperate and fight as dirty as it takes. We have to beware, we know their corrupt and have no morals and will lie, cheat, and steal to win.

    Putin’s no fool! He knows this crazed, Satanic, NWO demagogue will ignite WW III.
