At her weekly briefing with journalists House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) criticized them from reporting on the hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee (DNC), calling them ‘accomplices’ in what she said was an effort by Russia to disrupt the U.S. presidential election.

“I really say to you, my friends in the press, with all due respect for the guardians of the First Amendment that you are, that you were accomplices in this,” Pelosi said.

“It was every single day you reported that there was an email that was embarrassing to the Clinton administration without saying, ‘We know this because of disruption by a foreign power into our electoral system,’” said the House Minority Leader.

‘You knew that,” Pelosi said. “You knew it was the Russians.”

And so did it affect the Clinton campaign?” Pelosi said in response to a reporter’s question about whether she thought the hacking affected the outcome of the election. “Of course, it did.”

“Would it have come out differently?” Pelosi said. “I don’t know because there are many factors in an election.”

The DNC emails, which were posted online for the public to read by the group Wikileaks, included revelations about DNC efforts to marginalize Socialist candidate Bernie Sanders and information about DNC leader Donna Brazile reportedly passing confidential debate questions to candidate Hillary Clinton.
