Watts: Reason Russian Active Measures Worked Is Because Trump Used Active Measures Against His Opponents
LANKFORD: “My question is, first, why did he think he could get away with it this time? This is not new for the Russians. They’ve done this for a long time across Europe, but it was much more engaging this time in our election. Why now? Mr. Watts?”
WATTS: “I think this answer is very simple and it's what no one is really saying in this room, which is part of the reasons active measures have worked in this U.S. election is because the commander-in-chief has used Russian active measures at time against his opponents."
