Spicer said in an interview Thursday on CNN that there has not been enough talk about what the DNC could have done to keep its systems from being hacked.
“To be clear, any attempt to hack or to do anything nefarious is wrong and illegal. But at some point — the question hasn’t even been asked of the DNC — did you take basic measures to protect the data that was on there?” Spicer said.
“No one wrote those emails, no one put a private server on there and no one seems to have done the due diligence at the DNC to protect their own systems.”
In the same interview, Spicer also called for the intelligence community to publicly disclose its findings on Russian interference in the presidential election. Russians are believed to have hacked the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta and provided the emails to WikiLeaks.
President Obama has called for a full report on the suspected hacking, but much of the intelligence agencies’ most recent conclusions have come to light through the media.
“We need to have the intelligence community come forward publicly and on the record and make it clear exactly how this happened and who was responsible for it,” Spicer said.
