Former Obama Chief Of Staff: McConnell Watered Down 2016 Russia Warning

(Washington, DC) – A September 2016 warning about Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. election was “watered down” by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

That’s the claim by former White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, who worked the job throughout former President Obama’s second term. On NBC’s “Meet the Press,” McDonough said the letter was written to the National Association of State Election Directors and signed by McConnell, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

The letter told states to make sure their network is secure from an attack. McDonough explained it took over three weeks to get the statement worked out. He added the lack of urgency from Republican leadership in 2016 is still being seen today.
