Reince Priebus Challenges Chuck Todd: 'What's Your Source'?

Sean Spicer told CNN's Michael Smerconish Saturday morning that the reports claiming the Russian government hacked the Republican National Committee during the 2016 election are false.

"Forget about who did the hacking", he added. "We contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation months ago, when the DNC issue came about". We want to protect American interests.

In a heated exchange with NBC News' "Meet The Press" moderator Chuck Todd, Reince Priebus, now Trump's chief of staff, lashed out at a New York Times report that the RNC was hacked - declaring it was simply not true. "You would have to believe that the uniform nature of the hacking and the dumping of information that was damaging to Secretary Clinton and helpful to Donald Trump was both coincidental and accidental, and the Russians didn't know what they were doing, to believe that they had no interest in helping one candidate", he said on NBC News. "It wasn't hacked. We have intelligence agencies that we worked with that are willing to sort this out".

The article didn't say, "Affiliates of the R.N.C". "I mean, the fact of the matter is, you should be happy the RNC wasn't hacked", adding that he doesn't know of "any employee on any of their Gmail accounts that was hacked".

Dexter Fowler to sign with Cardinals, heading to St. Louis for physical
That visual might be disorienting for Cubs fans who just watched what will probably be the best two seasons of Fowler's career. Fowler said negotiations with the Cardinals were easy with one notable exception.

"Why would the press run with something that isn't true?"

"But my question's not about the RNC", Todd said. "Reince, no, no, no. Do you not believe anything that Russian Federation was attempting to infiltrate the USA election system in any way, shape or form?" However, while files from the DNC appeared online, often painting the Clinton campaign in a bad light, few Republican documents appeared - and those that did came from individual Republicans, not the national committee. So you tell me where this story is at.

"What you are saying is, until the Central Intelligence Agency comes out and produces somebody on the record, you are going to dispute this the entire time?" "I don't know whether it's true or not..."

"It's clear the Russians interfered", McCain said.

House OKs bill to ban abortion after 20 weeks
But Tuesday, Faber said he was emboldened to pass the heartbeat bill because of Trump's election and the anti-abortion U.S. Senate Bill 127 was passed by the state House 64-29 on Thursday and then again later in the evening by the Senate 23-8.

The president-elect's transition team responded to Friday's reports by attacking the Central Intelligence Agency as "the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction".

Priebus also objected to the notion that a foreign agent's intrusion into US entities had influenced the presidential election, telling NBC's Chuck Todd that "you don't have any proof that the outcome of the election was changed".

"What I'm asking you Chuck, tell me what the specific source that you have, other than the NY times article". Some intelligence officials, as well as Clinton campaign operatives, have suggested that the hackers were originally trying to disrupt the election and confidence in the USA democratic process, rather than get any individual elected.

U.S. intelligence officials are also divided on the link between the Kremlin and the hackers. "Then we can make intelligence decisions".

Pakistan wants 'result-oriented' dialogue with India
Talking to the United States press, Fatemi emphasised that Pakistan wanted relations between the two countries to further strengthen.

Later, Todd asked: "Let's just clear this up, do you believe that the president-elect believed that Russian Federation was trying to muddy up and get involved in the election in 2016?"
