President Trump and his high advisers look like at loggerheads over who’s in charge for the continued cyberattack on authorities and company laptop methods – in addition to its seriousness.
“The Cyber Hack is way higher within the Faux Information Media than surely,” Trump tweeted Saturday in his first public feedback on the disaster, pooh-poohing the dire assessments of his personal Division of Homeland Safety.
“Russia, Russia, Russia is the precedence chant when something occurs,” he went on to complain – including, “it might be China (it might!).”
That pronouncement undercut Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who on Friday pinned blame for breach on Russia – the primary member of the Trump administration to take action.
“This was a really important effort,” Pompeo advised radio talker Mark Levin. “I believe it’s the case that now we will say fairly clearly that it was the Russians that engaged on this exercise.”
Trump went on to tie the pc intrusion to his continued unproven claims of widespread fraud in final month’s presidential election, which he has not conceded — regardless of this week’s Electoral Faculty vote confirming Joe Biden’s victory.
“There may even have been successful on our ridiculous voting machines in the course of the election,” he tweeted — “which is now apparent that I gained huge.”
