Trump Gave A ‘Boost To Illegal Activity’ When Urging Wikileaks To Hack Clinton’s Emails: Mueller
During his testimony, former special counsel Robert Mueller tried to avoid making value judgments about Donald Trump and how his campaign acted during the 2016 election.
But that quickly changed once Rep. Mike Quigley (D-IL) asked Mueller about Trump’s involvement in urging Wikileaks to release the hacked emails that were stolen from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
After reading a series of Trump tweets encouraging his followers to go read the stolen Clinton campaign emails, Quigley asked Mueller if he was “disturbed” by any of those quotes.
“Problematic is an understatement in terms of what it displays,” Mueller replied regarding Trump’s actions. “In terms of giving some, I don’t know, some hope or some boost to what is and should be illegal activity.”
