Pence talks ‘consequences’ if Russia is meddling

Donald Trump’s running mate, Mike Pence, says there should be “serious consequences” if Russia is found to be interfering in the US electoral process.

In a statement Wednesday, Pence says “both parties and the United States government will ensure there are serious consequences” to the hacking.

But in a press conference moments earlier, Trump declined to speak out against the breach to Democratic National Committee computers, which the Democrats have blamed on Russia.

Instead, he called on Russia to find the missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal server, since they probably contain “some beauties.”

Trump said he has no relationship to Russian President Vladimir Putin and does not know if Russia or some other country is responsible for the DNC breach.
