In a surprising twist, incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus said Sunday on Fox News that President-elect Donald Trump accepts that Russia played a role in hacking the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta.

Priebus, the former RNC chairman, said Trump understands that Moscow was behind the intrusions into the Democratic Party organizations. “He accepts the fact that this particular case was entities in Russia so that’s not the issue” and added that Trump “is not denying that entities in Russia were behind this particular hacking campaign.”

“But here’s the thing that I think everyone needs to understand — when this whole thing started, it started from the Russians 50 years ago … This is something that’s been going on in our elections for many, many years.” Priebus said it “happens every election period.”

“In this particular case, it started way back in 2015 before either nominee of either party was chosen,” Priebus said. “And it started … as a spearfishing expedition over many different institutions.”

  • Trump keeps selling out his anti-NWO fans, who bothered to vote for him rather than just stay home and give all the candidates the middle finger that they deserve. I don’t think there is end to the pit, it is bottomless. That is what they call CONTROLLED OPPOSITION, FAKE RIGHT-LEFT PARADIGM(BASED ON SOCIAL ISSUES RATHER THAN FINANCIAL ISSUES). The CONTROLLED religious right vs the CONTROLLED atheist left. ON and ON and ON and ON.

    What did albert Einstein say about INSANITY? Keep doing the same things but expect different results each time.
