Former Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen Michael Flynn (Ret.) said that he believes the odds are “very high, likely” that Hillary Clinton’s emails were hacked by a country like China or Russia in an interview broadcast on Monday’s “Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel.
“As a military officer, if I said I was doing something for convenience[‘s] sake, to my — to the soldiers that I was leading, and it was solely to — for my convenience instead of their, you know, their welfare, I should be relieved of duty. I would expect to be fired. It’s one of those things [where] if it doesn’t feel good, it probably isn’t. And this one doesn’t feel good to me” he stated.
Asked what he thought the likelihood Hillary’s emails were hacked into by foreign countries like China or Russia, he said “very high, likely…they’re very good at it–China, Russia, Iran, potentially the North Koreans — and other countries who may be ‘our allies’ because they can.” Although, he did say that it was possible the server could have been protected and maybe it was secure, but added “I just know — how our adversaries work.”
