GOP Rep On Wikileaks: ‘Did What The Media Should Have Done’

Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) said that all of the information that came out about the DNC appeared to come from leaks and praised Wikileaks for revealing the corruption in the DNC.

“The truth is, and I think that your own station sources would admit that most of what we’re talking about now is based on leaks,” Franks said. “I’m all for doing what’s necessary to protect the election here. But there’s no suggestion that Russia hacked into our voting system or anything like that. They, if anything, whatever they might have done was to try to use information in a way that may have affected something that they believed was in their best interests.”

“But if the bottom line is if they succeeded — if Russia succeeded in giving the American people information that was accurate, then they merely did what the media should have done,” he added.
