National Security Analyst Just Blasted Trump For Continuing To Deny Russia Hacking

Asha Rangappa, a legal and national security analyst, was shocked to hear that Donald Trump still believes that Russia had nothing to do with hacking the 2016 presidential election.

On Sunday, Trump’s new communications director Anthony Scaramucci defended the president’s claims that Russia had nothing to do with hacking the election.

In response, Rangappa talked about Scaramucci’s excuse that he couldn’t verify the claims because he hasn’t yet been granted the proper security clearance level.

“Does he think the Russians are more skilled than his own intelligence officials?” asked CNN host Ana Cabrera.

“That seems to be what he’s implying,” confessed Rangappa. “I worked counter intelligence investigations, the Russians are a worthy adversary, but we are better. The fact that we have all of this information and intelligence that has been clearly presented to him demonstrates that they had — we have I’m not sure what else to say about this.”

Rangappa added that Trump’s claims were “troubling.”

“It’s as if a president after 9/11 had said, ‘I don’t believe Al Qaeda is behind the 9/11 attacks.’ What would we have said at that point? Ultimately he’s the one that needs to take action, though I think the sanctions bill is an important step and I hope it will be able to go into effect.”
