MSNBC’s Kornacki on Questions About Potential Vote Hacking: ‘I Can’t See Anything to This’
MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki tonight tackled the questions that are being raised about the legitimacy of the vote in three states.
There are people encouraging the Hillary Clinton campaign to contest the election results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin due to some alleged evidence supposedly found by computer scientists to suggest tampering. The Jill Stein campaign is calling for a recount in those states.
Both FiveThirtyEight and a reporter for New York Times‘ Upshot both basically debunked the idea that there’s anything concrete to this, and when Kornacki tackled the issue while guest-hosting Hardball tonight, he was very uncomfortable by this being brought up.
NBC News contributor Raul Reyes pointed to how people are simply saying “there could be” evidence of hacking.
Kornacki said that “we should be careful with this” and explained he looked into the issue here and “can’t see anything to this.”
Reyes pointed out Republicans would demand an investigation if the shoe was on the other foot. Kornacki said, “I get uneasy going down this road.”
