Jackie Speier: Trump Probably Shouldn’t Be the President ‘But for the Russian Intervention’

‘The president does not want to suggest that he didn’t win this election above board’

EXCERPT:

SPEIER: "I think it is very fundamental. The President does not want to suggest that he didn’t win this election above board. The truth of the matter is, he probably should not be the President of the United States but for the Russian intervention. So denying the Russian intervention in the election serves his purposes and that is why there has been a reluctance by the Attorney General, the President of the United States and so many others to somehow minimize the Russian engagement that was a frontal attack on the United States of America."
