White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest went off script Monday and attacked President-elect Donald Trump to an unprecedented degree for the outgoing administration during the transition period in which it transfers power.
Earnest castigated Trump during the White House daily press briefing for the way he ran his presidential campaign and benefited from Russian interference in the presidential election.
“Does the White House have a position on if the Russians were attempting to interfere with the election or what their motives were? Or was it to actually help elect Donald Trump, or was it just to create chaos?” Reuters correspondent Ayesha Rascoe asked.
Rascoe also addressed the Trump team’s concern that Democrats are using the hacking of political systems earlier this year to delegitimize Trump’s victory last month over Hillary Clinton.
