This hypocrisy is no surprise. For Hillary and the Democrats, it was all about destroying Trump. Not about telling the truth, or defending America, or pointing out any genuine threat from Russia.
“Hillary Clinton’s election team ‘met with Russian ambassador’, Kremlin claims,” by Thomas Hunt, Express, March 13, 2017:
HILLARY Clinton’s election team met with the Russian ambassador during the campaign, a Kremlin spokesman has revealed as he ordered the US should stop “demonising” Russia.
Dmitry Pesov, the Russian spokesman, is adamant his country “never” intervened in American politics and it is “fake news”.
Speaking about the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, he said: “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.
“There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.
The attacks on the Trump administration, regarding Russian links, have become a “nightmare” and it is daft to think they could intervene in the election.
He added: “The fact that Russia is being demonised in that sense comes very strange to us.
“Quite unexpectedly, we were in the position where Russia became, shall we say, a nightmare for the United States. You are self-humiliating yourself to say that a country can intervene.
Farage: Donald Trump and I are the most vilified in the West
“America, a huge country – the most powerful country in the world, with very, very stable political traditions, and you say that a country can easily intervene and easily influence your electoral process? This is simply impossible.”
A Russian weapons expert recently made the extraordinary claim that Vladimir Putin had intended to “destabilise” Hilary Clinton in the hopes she would become President.
However Pesov does not agree. He insisted that Russia “have never had, and never will have, any intention to intervene in another country’s affairs. The candidate Hillary Clinton was quite negative – declaring Russia the main evil, the main threat.
“Whom would you like better – the one that says Russia is evil? Or the one that says yes we disagree, but let’s find points of agreement.
“We do worry. Public opinion – if you load with a huge burden of fake news, fake blaming on Russia – repeat every day numerous times that Russia is interfering, guilty of trying to hack, that everything that goes wrong in the country is the fault of Russia.
“We want to see this hysteria coming to its logic end. Better sooner than later.”
The spokesman concluded that initial interactions with the Trump administration had been “quite promising” but Russia was disappointed in recent responses.
