  • Russia Admits Contact With Trump Team

    MOSCOW — Russian government officials had contacts with members of Donald Trump’s campaign team, a senior Russian diplomat said Thursday, in a disclosure that could reopen scrutiny over the Kremlin’s role in the president-elect’s bitter race against Hillary Clinton.

    ...But Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with the state-run Interfax news agency that “there were contacts” with the Trump team.

    “Obviously, we know most of the people from his entourage,” Ryabkov said. “Those people have always been in the limelight in the United States and have occupied high-ranking positions. I cannot say that all of them but quite a few have been staying in touch with Russian representatives.”

    Speaking to Bloomberg News, ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said staff of Russia’s embassy in the United States met with members of Trump’s campaign — meetings she described as “normal practice.” Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign refused similar requests for meetings, she told the agency.

    So.....people on Trump's team had seen Russians before? And were talking to them on occasion?

    Yeah, that's iron-clad proof of the Russians interfering in our election. How many countries does a Presidential Campaign team speak to, if only to give them reassurances that the US won't nuke them on January 21st? And we know damn well that Hillary and company have hundreds of contacts, many of them in brutal dictatorships.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

        If it even happened. The Post claimed Trump had an 18% chance to win less than 24 hours before he won.

        Not a credible source.
