How much have we heard the left complain about the Russians for the last year? The last month? The last week?
First, liberals cried that Trump and his campaign were working with the Russians. Then we heard the Russians fixed the election for Trump. Then there was all the hand-wringing about Attorney General Jeff Sessions having met with the Russian ambassador in his capacity as a Senator.
Well, lo and behold, now a spokesman for Vladimir Putin has said that Hillary’s people met with the same Russian ambassador who liberals have been freaking out over conservatives and Republicans meeting.
According to The Hill:
“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,” Dmitry Peskov told CNN “GPS” host Fareed Zakaria. “There are lots of specialists in politology, people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.”
Peskov said it is the job of Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to meet with officials on both sides to talk about “bilateral relations.”
Peskov also defended those meetings, saying they were not an attempt to interfere in the 2016 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. But it would be nonsense, because this is not true,” Peskov said.
No doubt some of the advisers the ambassador met with would have been given administration or even cabinet positions if Hillary had – God forbid – won the presidency. Also, no doubt that that would never have been controversial.
