Trump Accuses DNC of Faking Hack

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday accused the Democratic National Committee of intentionally setting up a hack of its opposition research on him in order to distract from their party’s presumptive nominee. “We believe it was the DNC that did the ‘hacking’ as a way to distract from the many issues facing their deeply flawed candidate and failed party leader,” Trump said in a statement. “Too bad the DNC doesn’t hack Crooked Hillary’s 33,000 missing emails.” On Tuesday, it was revealed that Russian hackers stole the DNC’s opposition research on Trump. The alleged document containing the research was leaked by Gawker on Wednesday.
