Evidence suggesting Russia may be meddling in the upcoming 2020 presidential election appears to be “overstated,” according to Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett.
Discussing the claim that Russia is making a specific “play” to boost President Trump’s reelection bid on “The Story”, Gregg said he spoke privately with a “key official” involved with the matter who called the media narrative “completely overstated.”
“Any information was overstated,” Jarrett told host Martha MacCallum. “There are several sources, national security sources who have told members of the media including CNN, but I have talked to one key official as well who said that this is completely overstated.”
The New York Times and CNN reported last week that top U.S. intelligence officials had told lawmakers earlier this month that Russia wanted to help Trump win reelection. CNN has since walked back that report.
