Democrats have long pushed the idea that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians for months hoping to find a way to prove that the president somehow stole the election from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
However, it’s looking more unlikely that they will find any evidence to support those claims — especially since a spokesman and top aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has acknowledged that Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak also met with Clinton aides during the election because it’s part of the job.
In fact, they had “lots” of meetings with people working in think tanks “advising” Hillary or those working for Hillary.
The Hill reported that Russian spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNN “GPS” host Fareed Zakaria this week, “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.”
“There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary,” he said.
He said that one part of Kislyak’s normal duties was to meet with officials on both sides to talk about “bilateral relations.”
Peskov added that the meetings were not an attempt to interfere in the presidential election.
“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 said. “But it would be nonsense, because this is not true.”
So, the Democrats met with the Russians, too. Yet there’s no outrage from the left.
The left’s argument that Trump colluded with the Russians was always weak, and now they should just put it to rest entirely. However, they will probably say Peskov’s remarks are nothing more than a defense of Trump, since the Russians wanted Trump to win the election anyway.
Or something like that.
The more they keep trying to work this story, the more their hypocrisy and desperation show.
