Slideshow ‘DNC A Sitting Duck’: Priebus Says Democrats To Blame For Email Hack, Thinks Trump Accepts Intel Findings
Reince Priebus, Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Sunday that he thinks the president-elect “accepts the findings” of the recently released U.S. intelligence report that ties Russian President Vladimir Putin to meddling in the 2016 White House race.
“I think he accepts the finding,” Priebus said. “He’s not denying entities in Russia are behind these particular hackings.”
But Priebus also cast a lot of blame on Democrats for allowing sensitive emails to be hacked, which hurt the campaign of their presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
Still, Priebus argued that the FBI warned the Democratic National Committee about the email hackings.
"We have a DNC as a sitting duck . . . It matters,” he said. “They lacked defenses. They lacked training. They allowed foreign governments into their system.”
