WASHINGTON (Sputnik) —Trump made a remark, while responding to Clinton's claim that there is no doubt that the Russian government has carried out cyberattacks against the United States and many of its organizations.
"I don’t think anybody knows it was Russia that broke into the DNC… it could be Russia, but it could also be China," Trump stated on Monday evening. "It could also be lots of other people. It could also be somebody sitting on their bed."
Earlier in the debate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton claimed that there was "no doubt" Moscow had used cyberattacks against US organizations.
Clinton partisans and other US politicians have accused Russia of attempting to interfere in US elections, including through cyberattacks on the Democratic Party and state voting systems.
The Kremlin has called the hacking claims absurd and stressed that Russia has no desire to influence the US election.
