GOP Congressman: If The Information Was Accurate, Russian Hackers Did The Media's Job

In an appearance on MSNBC on Thursday, Rep. Trent Franks said that so long as the information provided was factual, Russian hackers who publicized private Democratic Party emails via WikiLeaks were doing "what the media should have done." <blockquote>REP. TRENT FRANKS: I’m all for doing what’s necessary to protect the election here, but there’s no suggestion that Russia hacked into our voting systems or anything like that. If anything, whatever they may have done, was to try to use information in a way that may have affected something that they believe was in their best interest. But the bottom line, 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.</blockquote>
