U.S. Intel Head: We’re ‘Not Ready’ to Say Russia Was Behind DNC Hack

clapperDirector of National Intelligence James Clapper said today he’s “not ready” yet to say Russia was behind the DNC hack.

Everyone is operating on the assumption that it was Russia, which is why Donald Trump‘s remarks this week alarmed so many, but Clapper told CNN’s Jim Sciutto today< "I don't think we're quite ready yet to make a call on attribution." Sciutto asked Clapper if that's because they know and don't want to say so yet, or because of "uncertainty." [ooyala id=RidW8wNTE6KSkT3T_Q7ypXMaBdyIjeql] Clapper said it's a little of both.
