WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager is accusing Russia of leaking emails from the Democratic National Committee to help Republican Donald Trump in the presidential election.

Robby Mook says on CNN’s `State of the Union” that experts are telling the campaign “Russian state actors” broke into the DNC’s emails, and that other experts say these Russians are now selectively releasing the emails.

He says it’s no coincidence the emails are coming out on the eve of the party’s nominating convention in Philadelphia.

Wikileaks has posted emails that including several denunciations of Clinton’s primary rival, Bernie Sanders, and his supporters.
