Palin: ‘I can keep an eye’ on Russia

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin tweeted Sunday about a secret CIA report that determined Russia intervened in the U.S. presidential election to help Donald Trump win. 

{mosads}“Russia’s getting out of hand? So says the defeated,” Palin tweeted, appearing to question the CIA report.

Her skepticism echoed President-elect Donald Trump’s, who called the Washington Post’s report on the Russian interference “another excuse” from Democrats to explain their loss.

Palin piled on in her tweet, adding, “Remember I can keep an eye on them from here,” an allusion to a 2008 interview in which she said her time in Alaska gave her insight into Russian actions.

“They’re our next-door neighbors,” she told ABC as the vice presidential nominee. “And you can actually see Russia, from land, here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska.”

 

But a bipartisan group of senators said earlier Sunday that the reports should “alarm every American,” and called for an investigation.
