DHS Secretary Refuses to Comment on Clinton Claims Russia Behind Election Hack

Sputnik — 27.09.2016

US Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson refused to discuss Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s attribution of recent election cyberattacks in the United States to Russia in a brief conversation with Sputnik on Tuesday.

During the Monday presidential debate, Clinton asserted “there is no doubt” that Russia organized the July hack against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and other election-cycle cyberattacks.

“I have no comment on that, sorry,” Johnson told Sputnik when asked about Clinton’s statement during the Monday night US presidential debate claiming that Russia was behind recent election-cycle hacks in the United States.

Clinton’s allegations do not match the official statements by the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the Department of Homeland Security, which have not yet made any attribution for the DNC hack or recent cyber breaches of US state election systems.

Russia has also rejected the claims of interfering in the US election as absurd.

  1. “Clinton asserted “there is no doubt” that Russia organized the July hack”….. Translation: “There’s no doubt in Clinton’s mind”…………..and of course Jeh Johnson would say that wouldn’t he. In the American government, you either ‘toe the line’ or you’re ‘out on your arse’…………..
