Trump Doubts Evidence of Russian Hacking Based on Misunderstanding with U.S. Spies

President Trump doesn’t believe there’s ample evidence to prove Russia hacked into the Democratic National Committee because Kremlin operatives would have never been caught.

That’s what Trump’s new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, told CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday. 

“He basically said to me, ‘Hey you know, maybe they did it, maybe they didn’t do it,'” Scaramucci told a skeptical Tapper.

Scaramucci said Trump called him from Air Force One on Saturday and told “me yesterday that if the Russians actually hacked this situation, and spilled out those emails, you would’ve never seen it, you would’ve never had any evidence of that.”

But what Scaramucci appears to misunderstand is that intelligence experts have determined Russian operatives wanted it known that they were behind the cyberattack.

During a House Intelligence Committee hearing in March, former FBI director James Comey said, “Their loudness, in a way, would be counting on us to amplify it by telling the American people what we saw and freaking people out about how the Russians might be undermining our elections successfully.”
