“No, they did not stop. They came after us absolutely every day until the end of the election. They tried to hack into our system repeatedly,” Brazile told ABC’s “This Week.” 

In his last press conference of the year on Friday, Obama said he told Putin at a conference in September that there would be consequences if the attacks did not stop.

“And in fact, we did not see further tampering of the election process. But the leaks through Wikileaks had already occurred,” he said.

Brazile said she was “disappointed” that the Democratic Party was “under constant attack.” 

“We never felt comfortable. We didn’t know what was coming next. And, you know, this is not just about computers; this is harassment of individuals, it’s harassment of our candidates, harassment of our donors,” she added. “We had stolen information, personal information. People were personally harassed.”
