While appearing on MSNBC Friday, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee , D-Texas, blamed the online encyclopedia Wikipedia and the Russians for leaked emails made public by Wikileaks.

“You know that I’m going to first of all denounce the utilization of this intrusion by Wikipedia through the Russian intrusion,” she said. “This is what it’s about. Espionage just like what was said over these last couple of days. We need to be concerned about the intrusion of Russia and Putin in these elections.”

The Wikileaks Task Force, a Twitter account set up to rebut misinformation about the group, tweeted:

Mikael Thalen added:

Lee’s interview follows WikiLeaks 14th publication of Podesta emails which have thus far exposed everything from the media’s close ties with the Clinton campaign to Hillary’s private Wall Street speeches.

Podesta was hacked last March after clicking on a phishing link that led to a fake Google login page. Private cybersecurity firm SecureWorks has blamed the Russian government for hacking Podesta after discovering the hackers’ account on Bitly – a hyperlink shortening service – which listed malicious links sent to 100 email addresses connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

The Obama administration asked the CIA to prepare possible retaliation scenarios against the Russian government last Friday just one week after publicly blaming the Kremlin.
