SEAN HANNITY (HOST): The real truth is simple. The Russians try to hack us, we try to hack them. Everything that we’re upset that they’re doing, we’re doing to them. That’s what happens, the fact that the United States has not lived up to preventing the ability of these people to hack us is ridiculous. Everyone’s saying, the other big story well, we now know that the Russians, they got into the DNC. Well we know that six foreign intelligence services hacked into Hillary’s email, we don’t know which one or how it got into the hands of Wikileaks, it could have been any of them, Russia, China, North Korea, the Iranian mullahs, when are we, at what point do you say fool me once shame on you, twice shame on you, fool me a thousand times and let decades go by and you don’t create a defense against at these cyber crimes, well then it’s shame on us. We’ve got to be really stupid at that point.
Nobody doubts the nefarious intentions of Vladimir and Russia, they’re not our friend. But it’s smart to talk to them, let’s see if we can get some of these issues resolved.
