The New York Times got the ball rolling on the “Russian election hack” with an article entitled, “Russian Hackers Acted to Aid Trump in Election, U.S. Says“.
The NYT bases their entire story on the premise that…
–“the Russians hacked the Republican National Committee’s computer systems in addition to their attacks on Democratic organizations, but did not release whatever information they gleaned from the Republican networks.”
Reince Priebus is very clear on this issue, “the RNC was absolutely not hacked.”
How would Priebus know? Well he was the RNC Chair at the time of the report, so he is a first person witness to the factual events as they unfolded.
The NYT claims Russian hackers manipulated US election results in order to give the win to Donald Trump. Preibus tears this notion apart, after he defends the choice of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State.
