Donald Trump Challenges DNC on Servers: 'It's All a Big Dem HOAX!'

Donald Trump Challenges DNC on Servers: 'It's All a Big Dem HOAX!'

In another Thursday tweet, Trump wrote, "If Russia was working so hard on the 2016 Election, it all took place during the Obama Admin".

He also said Russian Federation did not "alter or suppress" votes in their hack of the 2016 presidential election.

Officials with the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation told the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday that Russian Federation targeted the election systems of 21 states a year ago.

When asked Tuesday whether Trump believed that Russian Federation interfered in the election, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said he could not give a definitive answer because he had not asked Trump about it since he took office in January.

Russia's actions did not change the final election count, those testifying said, but they warned that Russia's efforts will likely continue.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has finished his meeting with leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee in a secure room in the Capitol.

The Russia issue has cast a shadow over President Trump's first five months in office. Mark Warner was particularly displeased with the secrecy, which DHS said was necessary to preserve trust from its local partners. Republican leaders in Congress, however, "balked" at the suggestion. Senators on the Intelligence Committee pressed administration officials Wednesday to disclose more about the extent of Russian hacking attempts during last year's election after the government disclosed that 21 states had been targeted.

President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said Wednesday that the US move wasn't constructive and warned of possible retaliation.

That is correct, the DHS acting deputy undersecretary responded.

Later in the day, Russia's deputy foreign minister said he had cancelled talks that were scheduled for Friday with the US undersecretary of state.

"And: "... Why did Democratic National Committee turn down the [Department of Homeland Security] offer to protect against hacks (long prior to election).

The Senate committee was hearing from officials at the DHS and the FBI's counterintelligence division.

Johnson revealed that the DNC had declined an offer by the Department of Homeland Security to help them after their email servers had been hacked.

The findings are at the heart of an investigation into contacts that members of Mr Trump's campaign team may have had with Russian officials during the campaign and the transition.

USA officials believe that Russian intelligence agencies carried out email hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign and released documents through WikiLeaks and other websites.

"I was anxious to know whether our folks were in there", he said.

Johnson, who served in the post until January, says he became aware of the compromise "sometime in 2016".

But he says the answer wasn't reassuring.

"The DNC was contacted by [the Department of Homeland Security] months after the DNC worked closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to remedy the intrusion. That is a fact, plain and simple", Johnson testified in the House.

Johnson further explained that the October release of behind-the-scenes video from Access Hollywood, in which Trump was recorded making derogatory sexual comments about women, distracted from the eventual statement on the interference.
