National Security Adviser: ‘I Haven’t Seen Any Intelligence’ That Russia Trying to Help Trump
National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien rejected reports leaked from Congress that the U.S. intelligence community believes the Russian government is trying to interfere in the U.S. election to help President Trump.
“I haven’t seen any intelligence that Russia is doing anything to attempt to get President Trump reelected,” O’Brien said Sunday in an interview with ABC’s “This Week.”
“I think this is the same old story that we’ve heard before. … We’ve been very tough on Russia, and we’ve been great on election security. So I think it’s a nonstory.”
This comes after reports emerged earlier this week
