Kellyanne Conway Defends Russia, Blames U.S. Intelligence Agencies For Election Hacking

Following Trump’s playbook, former Trump campaign manager and future presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway appeared on CNN to blame the U.S. government, the DNC, and the media – not the Russians – for the cyber attacks on the 2016 elections.

Conway’s remarks came hours after President Obama announced a series of measures to punish Russia for its unprecedented interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“This is really about the DNC’s breach. They didn’t have the proper security … and someone was able to hack the information, and we are not in favor of foreign governments interfering in our elections or interfering in our intelligence. We’re also not in favor of our intelligence interfering with our elections after the fact.”

Take a look:

Conway also repeated Trump’s line that it’s time to “move on” from the Russian hacking and even said that Obama’s moves today – the harshest ever in response to a foreign cyberattack – are “symbolic.”

“I’ve been reading all the news reports about these retaliations, these sanctions put forward by President Obama and his administration, some of them seem largely symbolic … We’re yet to see all of the intelligence reports … so he’ll have that briefing next week, but in the meantime, he repeated today what he said last night to reporters here at Mar-a-Lago, which is he believes it’s time to move on to bigger and better things for the country,” she said.


What Trump and Conway are implying is that a foreign government that interferes in a U.S. election – especially if it helps your candidate win – should face no consequences.

In their view, the American people and the media should quiet down and brush it under the rug.

And these people will be running our government in less than a month. God helps us all.
