Kellyanne Conway: We should listen to Julian Assange on hacking allegations

WikiLeaks founder reveals a ‘bombshell’ about Russian hacking


Americans should listen to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s denials that Russia was the source of hacked Democratic emails released by his group over the summer, said Kellyanne Conway, a senior advisor to President-elect Donald Trump.


This was the information that Assange put forward. I think that’s a bombshell” Conway told CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Tuesday, referring to excerpts from a transcript released by Fox News of Assange’s interview with Sean Hannity.


Assange told Hannity that his source was not the Russian government, and “not a state party” adding President Barack Obama is trying to “delegitimize the Trump administration” with accusations that Russia engaged in hacking to help Trump beat Democrat Hillary Clinton.
