DNC Chair Perez: Did Trump and Putin Rig Election?

A day after winning the race for Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, establishment candidate Tom Perez began a sprint to the left on CNN’s State of the Union, peddling a conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin “rigged” the 2016 election.

“What we need to be looking at is whether this election was rigged by Donald Trump and his buddy Vladimir Putin,” Perez said.

Perez called his accusation “a serious, serious issue.” Perez continued, “The American people need to understand whether the Russians in cahoots with the Trump folks and others rigged the election.”
