Days after the Senate passed tougher sanctions on Russia, the White House is reportedly saying “not so fast.”
WASHINGTON — It started with her emails.
Hillary Clinton’s emails were hacked — through both Democratic National Committee servers and the private account of her campaign chairman — and released on the website Wikileaks.
The intelligence community pointed the finger at Russia, and officials later said they believed the operation was part of a deliberate effort to sway the 2016 presidential election.
There is, as of yet, no direct, public evidence that President Trump knew anything about the hacking — though he did say last July that he hoped Russia would be able to find official emails missing from Clinton’s home server.
