Kremlin says Clinton officials ALSO met with Russians
March 13, 2017
During an interview with CNN Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said associates of Hillary Clinton’s campaign met with Russia’s US ambassador.
(WASHINGTON, DC) The spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin turned the tables Sunday by saying that the Russian ambassador to the U.S. also met with people connected to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, not just Trump advisers.
Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, told CNN “GPS” host Fareed Zakaria that Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak met with “people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary,” The Hill reports.
Peskov stressed that part of Kislyak’s job entails talking to officials and advisers on both sides of the aisle.
“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,” Peskov said. “There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.”
Yet, according to Peskov, none of these meetings constituted an attempt to influence the electoral process.
“But there were no meetings about elections — electoral process … So if you look at it with intention to demonize Russia, you would probably say that, yes, he was trying to interfere in Hillary’s activities,” he added. “But it would be nonsense, because this is not true.”
