Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus challenged Chuck Todd, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” on whether or not he could cite a single source that can confirm the RNC was hacked by Russian agents.
“The assessment from the CIA that the actions by the Russian government were disruptive in order to help Donald Trump,” Todd said. “Does Donald Trump have confidence in America’s intelligence?”
“Of course he has confidence in America’s intelligence, but we don’t have confidence in the New York Times releasing a report of unnamed sources… of some kind of study that the Washington Post said was inconclusive,” Priebus responded. “The RNC was absolutely not hacked.”
“When the DNC was hacked, we called the FBI. The FBI went through everything, and we were not hacked,” Priebus said. “If we were not hacked, then where does that story lie?’
