SCIUTTO: “Understood . And they have not been fulsome in their sharing of the information about the President’s health in the past. I want to talk about Russia because yesterday, we’re days away from the U.S. election, you tweeted this public comment, and you were briefed on the intelligence here, that there is evidence of a giant, quoting from you, multi-year effort to help Trump in 2020 by Russia. What can you tell us about that?”

MURPHY: “Well, what I can tell you is that it’s much bigger and bolder and smarter than it was in 2016 . The Russians have learned and they are now trying to use U.S. persons and fake websites in order to proffer a narrative that helps President Trump’s re-election. And I also think that you have to be much more serious about the Russian threat given today’s news. If President Trump can’t be out there on the campaign trail for the next two weeks, then he is going to rely on his surrogates and, unfortunately, one of his surrogates is Vladimir Putin, so you are likely going to see this campaign ramped up by Russia over the next few weeks to try to substitute for the President’s absence on the campaign trail. And my worry is that the intel agencies are not being clear with the American people about the size of the Russian operation and their clear desire to try to elect President Trump to a second term.”
SCIUTTO: “So intel agencies playing this down to the detriment of the security of the election . We also know that surrogates of the president are met with a known Russian intelligence agent in Andrii Derkach, a pro-Russian Ukrainian politician. Are you saying that Americans are aiding and abetting?”
MURPHY: “I didn’t say that, but H.R. McMaster, the former National Security Adviser did. He said, in fact, the President was aiding and abetting Russia’s efforts. And we found out that there was an Russian agent who was actively intermingling with the President’s inner circle and it was buried in a Treasury sanctions announcement. The intel agencies want to make you to believe that, you know, well, Russians are for Trump, but the Chinese and the Iranians, they are for Biden. That’s not true. We don’t know exactly what the Iranians and Chinese are doing. We know exactly what the Russians are doing and we know exactly what they want, and the intel agencies have to stop doing Trump’s political bidding and have their clients, the American people, first.”
