Clinton Campaign Chief Suggests Russians May Be Trying to Help Trump Win

Robby Mook cited experts saying Russians are behind DNC email leak.

"Experts are telling us that Russian state actors broke into the DNC, took all these emails, and now are leaking them out through these websites,” Mook told ABC’s "This Week" on Sunday. "It's troubling that some experts are now telling us that this was done by the Russians for the purpose of helping Donald Trump.”

"It was concerning last week that Donald Trump changed the Republican platform to become what some experts would regard as pro-Russian," Mook said.

Several of the emails released seem to indicate that the officials, including DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, grew increasingly agitated with Sanders and his campaign as the primary season advanced.

Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort responded to Mook’s allegation of collusion between the campaign and Russia, calling it absurd.
