The mainstream liberal media has an obsession with connecting President Trump with Russia. Liberals have been calling for independent investigation after independent investigation into the ties between the President, his surrogates, and the Kremlin. All in a pathetic attempt to get him impeached. It’s working miserably. And it turns out his former opponent has for more connection to the Russian government than our President does.
A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted that Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak met with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton numerous times when she was running for president on the 2016 campaign trail. Dmitry Peskov spoke with CNN host Fareed Zakaria.
He asserted that it was not abnormal for an ambassador to keep in touch with both candidates running in the general election. Zakaria asked him the following,
“So what was it that the Russian ambassador was talking to so many of Donald Trump’s associates about?”
“This is his job. He was talking about bilateral relations. He was talking about what was going on in the United States so we have a better understanding in Moscowl This is what has been performed by every ambassador of Russia abroad, every ambassador of the United States abroad — including in Moscow — the more ambassador talks to people in his country of residence, the better job he does.”
Peskov also maintained their was a broad and high level of contact between the Clinton campaign and the Russian government,
“Well, if you look at some people connected with Hillary Clinton during her campaign, you would probably see that he had lots of meetings of that kind. But there were no meetings about electoral process. There was in no way it should be percepted (sic) as interference in the electoral process. There are lots of specialists in politology (sic), people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary. So if you look at it with intention to demonize Russia, you would probably see that yes, he was trying to interfere in Hillary’s activities. But it would be nonsense because this is not true.”
The Russian spokesman also defended his President’s favorable comments of Donald Trump. Furthermore, he brushed them off as nothing more than a result of the negative comments Hillary Clinton made about the Russian President. He said,
“The candidate Hillary Clinton was quite negative about our country in her attitude. On your program declaring Russia nearly ‘the main evil in the world,’ and the main threat for the United States. To the contrary, the other candidate Donald Trump was saying that ‘Yes, we disagree with the Russians on lots of issues but we have to talk to them in order to try to find some understanding.’ Whom would you like better?”
Consequently, he denied any Russian involvement in the electoral process of the 2016 election. While everyone is preoccupied with Donald Trump’s connections with Russia it was in fact the democratic nominee who had more contact with his people. Should we investigate and prosecute Hillary Clinton now because of it?
