Lawmakers Term Alleged Trump Involvement 'Ongoing Criminal Activity'
Since the Democratic National Convention, the Clinton campaign has been accusing the Russian government of being behind a series of hacks embarrassing to Hillary Clinton, and has repeatedly claimed that Republican nominee Donald Trump is in league with the Russians.
House Dems appears to be looking to back up those allegations today, demanding that the FBI both launch a formal investigation into Trump’s involvement in the hacks, and for the FBI to “explain to the American people what steps it is taking to disrupt this ongoing criminal activity.”
The demands are coming from top committee members from four different House committees, and they are claiming that Trump adviser Roger Stone’s admission that he met with a “mutual friend” of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange amounted to him “bragging” about being involved in the hacks.
The Obama Administration already “confirmed” a link between the hacks and Russia, though they’ve offered no real evidence of that claim. Trump’s links to all this are even more speculative, though Clinton’s campaign has treated them as an undisputed fact for months.
