On CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Jake Tasse reported that a new poll found a majority of Americans “believe that the Russian government has interfered in the U.S. election.”
Tasse noted that a “third of Americans believe the Russian Government hacked the DNC emails,” adding that this is a major development.
Tasse then took aim at former President Donald Trump for his response to the news, which he said was a “complete waste of time.”
Tapper explained that it was Trump’s “failure to recognize that the evidence against Russia has increased and he should have called the Russians out for what they’ve done and not be dismissive of the evidence.
The reality is that the majority of people in this country believe the evidence is mounting.”
Trump responded to the poll question by saying, “I don’t know about you folks, but I think I’m going to be honest, I think the Russians hacked our election.”
“But I also know that I didn’t do anything wrong, I didn to the Russians,” he continued.
“I’m going with the facts.
The President did not elaborate on the evidence he said Russia was behind the hack, which could be used as a basis for impeachment. “
It’s a terrible situation,” Trump added.
The President did not elaborate on the evidence he said Russia was behind the hack, which could be used as a basis for impeachment.
“Look, I do believe the Russians interfered in our election.
I don’t believe they hacked the Democratic National Committee,” he said.
“And the people that are saying that are liars.”
