Clinton campaign chair Robby Mook said that “experts” have told the Clinton campaign that the DNC email hack may be a Russian plot to help Donald Trump.
Said Mook to George Stephanopoulos:
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. Obviously they have to determine what’s accurate, what’s doctored, what hasn’t been doctored..Some experts are now telling us that this was done by the Russians for the purposes of helping Donald Trump.”

Mook said he thinks it’s “concerning” that last week Trump changed the Republican platform to make it “pro-Russian.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper later spoke with Mook about the emails:
Donald Trump Jr. called Mook’s allegations “disgusting” on CNN’s State of the Union.
