WH Spox: Trump Acknowledges Russia 'Probably' Hacked DNC's Systems

However, Johnson didn't say that in testimony Wednesday before the House intelligence committee; Johnson said was he wasn't aware of efforts by Trump or his campaign to collude with Russian Federation beyond what the intelligence community already knows.

Trump has long raised doubts about whether Russian Federation was behind the hacking, something most Republicans and the entire intelligence community has determined. "Most of the intelligence products that are relied upon to form certain assessments, that underlying data was available in 2016, some of it before the election".

President Donald Trump said Thursday he has "no idea" whether recordings exist of his Oval Office conversations with ousted FBI Director James Comey, putting to rest weeks of speculation and intrigue during which the White House rebuffed questions about the tapes.

In morning tweets, Trump opined on the Russian Federation probe and sought to assert his innocence, even as special counsel Robert S. Mueller III expands the investigation of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to look at possible obstruction of justice by the president.

In widely anticipated testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Johnson provided tense and at times anguished answers about an unparalleled series of cyberattacks against last year's election.

Sixteen U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation did in fact meddle in the election, through cyberattacks and other activities, with the explicit aim of influencing the outcome.

Tension between Russian and the U, S. grew on another front, too: The Kremlin voiced displeasure Wednesday about new United States sanctions against Russia and called off much-anticipated talks with a senior U.S administration official in response.

The Democratic National Committee rejected help from the Department of Homeland Security following Russian hacks into its computer systems during the 2016 election cycle, according to former DHS chief Jeh Johnson. "Why didn't they stop them?" he asked. "It's all a big Dem HOAX!" he wrote.

Jeannette Manfra, a cybersecurity official at the Department of Homeland Security, said the decentralized nature of US elections means that an attempt to penetrate state systems and change results would be "virtually impossible" to accomplish without being detected. "It's all a big Dem HOAX!"

"The FBI and the DNC had been in contact with each other months before about the intrusion", Johnson said, "and the DNC did not feel it needed DHS' assistance at the time". But Johnson didn't say that Wednesday. With the benefit of hindsight, I can tell you for certain that in the late-summer, fall, I was very concerned about what I was seeing.

"We wanted to make sure that we were instilling confidence in people that we could conduct a free and fair election", Earnest said.

Bill Priestap, assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation counterintelligence division, said the FBI is investigating the hackers' targeting efforts.

The caucus said it's open to "discussion and debate about policies", but Chairman Cedric Richmond said: "I fail to see how a social gathering would benefit the policies we advocate for". "The only person who disputes this is Donald Trump, who has shown zero interest in protecting our country from future attacks and is now trying to distract Americans from his devastating healthcare repeal".
