Trump aide gives ambiguous comments on election interference

После саммита Госдеп США удалил заявление в котором осуждал Россию из-за падения самолета на Донбассе

"It was important to take that stand on behalf of the intelligence community", Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Thursday afternoon, adding, "I believed I needed to correct the record". "I don't think there's any doubt they did it". "What we've seen on the foreign influence side" is Russian attempts to "cause chaos on both sides".

In the video, as Secretary Nielsen delivers her "both sides" remarks, echoing the infamous words of President Donald Trump last August, Alexander moves his head down, nearly as if he's embarrassed or ashamed of her comments. "We also assess Putin and the Russian Government aspired to help President-elect Trump's election chances when possible by discrediting Secretary Clinton and publicly contrasting her unfavorably to him".

Also on July 19, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said he asked two Senate committees to hold hearings on possible additional sanctions against Russian Federation over its alleged election interference.

Nielsen's muddled response on Russian election interference comes during a week in which Trump has been accused of siding with Putin, who has denied the Kremlin meddled in the election, over the United States intelligence community.

The Homeland Security chief was pressed further on the subject during a question and answer session with the audience, and though she said she agreed with the intelligence community's assessment "full stop", she did not clarify whether she believed Russian Federation was out to bolster Trump's chances of winning.

"The overall goal is to sow discord", she said.

When asked what she thought about separating families - and whether it was a good idea - she said: "I say all the time the system is broken". When asked about the disparity, Nielsen said that the system remains broken, even if children are no longer separated - and that Congress still does need to act in order to address broader reform. Nielsen said she would not cut corners, like forgoing DNA tests and criminal background checks of those claiming to be parents, in order to meet the deadline.

Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen "has repeatedly spread misinformation and lied to the American people", he said.
