Harry Reid Claims “Russians Manipulated The Votes” In 2016

by Paul Goldberg

Per Noah Shachtman of the Daily Beast:

Harry Reid says there’s “no question” in his mind that Russian hackers covertly altered the 2016 vote count.

“I think one reason the elections weren’t what they should have been was because the Russians manipulated the votes. It’s that simple.”

Per Wikipedia, Harry Reid served as a United States Senator from Nevada from 1987 to 2017.

He led the Senate’s Democratic Conference from 2005 to 2017 and was the Senate Majority Leader from 2007 to 2015.

DailyCaller reports former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claimed — without evidence — that “Russians manipulated the votes” during the 2016 presidential election.

Reid made the comments in a Daily Beast article published Thursday, which reported that Russia held back dirt on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in anticipation that she would win the 2016 election.

“I think one reason the elections weren’t what they should have been was because the Russians manipulated the votes. It’s that simple,” Reid said.

The article also quotes former CIA Director John Brennan as saying the Russians “wanted to have bullets” to use against Clinton if she became president.

“They fully expected Hillary Clinton to become president, and [the Russians] wanted to have bullets they could use during her presidential term,” Brennan said.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller spent nearly two years investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and ultimately concluded that there was no evidence to suggest collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
