Email from former Trump official says Russians threw the election to him
It’s an email obtained by the New York Times that has K.T. Macfarland apparently saying the Russians threw the election to Trump:
On Dec. 29, a transition adviser to Mr. Trump, K. T. McFarland, wrote in an email to a colleague that sanctions announced hours before by the Obama administration in retaliation for Russian election meddling were aimed at discrediting Mr. Trump’s victory. The sanctions could also make it much harder for Mr. Trump to ease tensions with Russia, “which has just thrown the U.S.A. election to him,” she wrote in the emails obtained by The Times.
McFarland used to be Trump’s deputy national security advisor until she was re-assigned to be the ambassador to Singapore – she has yet to be confirmed by the Senate.
