NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–October 12, 2016. Hillary for America Chair John Podesta released the following statement after the Wall Street Journal reported today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation believes Russian intelligence agencies are behind the illegal hack of his personal email account:
“It is now clear that the illegal hack of my personal email account was — just like the other recent, election-related hacks — the work of the Russian government. This level of meddling by a foreign power can only be aimed at boosting Donald Trump and should send chills down the spine of all Americans, regardless of political party. Despite receiving an intelligence briefing on the Russians’ role in masterminding these hacks, Donald Trump continues to side with the Russians by publicly denying their involvement and even cheering on further intrusions. Worst of all, the growing number of links between Trump’s associates, Wikileaks and the Russian government raises troubling questions about the possibility that Trump’s allies had advance knowledge of the release of these illegally obtained emails. I intend to continue cooperating with the FBI investigation of these illegal hacks, and expect that federal investigators will follow the evidence in this case whether it leads — from Moscow to, potentially, back here in the United States.”
