According to Attorney General Loretta Lynch it is way too soon in the investigation to say whether or not the Russian hackers were trying to sway the election to Donald Trump, but she does know that Jon Podesta has no Idea what he’s talking about. Ms. Lynch was interviewed by Jake Tapper on State of the Union Sunday:
Despite what the MSM and Democrats still whining about losing the election claim, the Attorney General says it is way to premature to determine whether the Russians were help Trump win the election or any other motivation of the Russians. She said:
This is a serious issue, and I think it requires and calls for the study and the review that the president has directed that all of us who are in the intelligence community or affiliated with it undertake. And so I think it requires that kind of serious review of all the information that we gather, before we can come to conclusions that can be discussed about motivation and intent
Tapper also asked about the John Podesta op-ed in the Washington Post, where Clinton campaign chairman castigate the FBI as slow to respond to the hacking of his email. Lynch defended the agency which reports to her, basically saying (in more diplomatic terms) He’s not involved in the investigation what the hell does he know.
Well, what I can tell you is, this investigation was taken seriously from the beginning. This is an incredibly serious issue. I can’t comment on Mr. Podesta’s sources or where he gets his information or why he has that view.
