President-elect Donald Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer asked Sunday whether Hillary Clinton was going to be “punished” for trying to inappropriately influence the election.

“The fact is that everyone wants to make Donald Trump admit to certain things. When are we going to start talking about the other side of this, which is: What did Hillary Clinton do to influence the election? Is she going to be punished in any way? What are we doing to make sure people are not getting the debate questions ahead of time?” Spicer said during a contentious interview on ABC.

Spicer was referring to revelations — which came out of the hacks intelligence officials say were done by Russia — that Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile used her position as a commentator for CNN to provide the Clinton campaign with a heads up on the questions she would get during an upcoming town hall event the network was hosting during the Democratic primary. CNN subsequently fired Brazile.

Spicer said the incoming administration had yet to be convinced that Russia was behind the hacking of the email accounts of the DNC and Clinton campaign manager John Podesta. The incoming press secretary indicated Trump and his team would not reach any conclusions until they had seen the actual evidence U.S. intelligence agencies had gathered. Spicer said that Trump would wait until he gets a full briefing as president.
