Is RNC Chief Privy To Hacked DNC Emails?

What does Reince Priebus know?
Views:

The head of the RNC, Reince Priebus was discussing the hacked DNC emails that have had a big impact on the beginning of the Democratic Convention in Philly today and was ask by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell if he was worried that the Russians might very well have been the hackers and are trying to influence the election?

He boasted that if the RNC was hacked, there wouldn't be anything there that would cause them any harm. OK, Reince. Release all of your emails and let's see.

Sure, that will happen about as fast as Donald Trump releases his tax returns.

And Priebus downplayed the whole Russia connection to the hacks of the DNC said that it wasn't the Russians who wrote the emails so- no harm no foul.

He then followed up with a very curious prediction.

Reince said, "I believe that here are more emails coming. I think this is just the beginning. I don't believe Wikileaks or these folks, whoever they are, simply released the emails all at once without more to come. I think there's more to come and I think they should be prepared for more excitement in the email world this week."

Mitchell followed up,"Do you know something about it?"

Priebus denied knowing anything, but speculated on the motives of people that "like to play games" and said usually more do follow.

But not always, Reince. Not always.

This is very odd to me. Republicans and the media are getting miles and miles of traction out of this story after the horrific sh*t show the RNC put on last week so why make this pronouncement at all unless you have an idea of what's to come?

Don't you wonder if mother Russia is tipping off their boy, Comrade Trump?

I know I'm having a little fun with this, but it still was an odd statement to make by the RNC chief.
