Kaine: Either Trump Was ‘Incredibly Lucky’ Guessing About Russian Hacking or ‘He Was Aware of It’

‘They made a decision in June or early July that they wanted Donald Trump to win and they want to defeat Hillary Clinton’

RUSH EXCERPT:

KAINE: “Well, two facts that are facts in the public record. First as you know our combined Intel community made a decision that they put out a report in early January that Russia, they were engaged in getting data hacking the DNC state boards of elections just to sew chaos and they then made a decision in June or early July that they wanted Donald Trump to win and they want to defeat Hillary Clinton. In July Donald Trump went to a press conference and said I encourage Russia to sign area tack to help me win the he election. Either it was an incredibly lucky guess he made to state that at the time our Intel agencies say Russia made the decision to do that or he was aware of it. That’s what the investigation ultimately needs to get into as to whether Donald Trump himself and the campaign was aware of what Russia was doing. We don’t have the full answer to that question and you shouldn’t reach a haesy conclusion about it but I am now confident that we get to the bottom of it. Chris in one way the resignation of general Flynn is pivotal in this. That was last year. That was just about the election. General Flynn is a sitting national security adviser so now this is part of the administration itself and I think that guarentees even if it might be slow, we will get to the bottom of it and answer the question about what the trump connection to this Russian hacking was.”
