BOMBSHELL: Russians Say Hillary Campaign Met With Ambassador
The hypocrites on the Left once again hold Donald Trump to a completely different standard than the one to which they hold themselves.
Liberal cry out from the rooftops, “Trump, Russians! Trump, Russians!” As if saying it long enough or loud enough suddenly turns it into something bad. Well, if it’s bad when candidate Trump meets with Russian government officials, it’s equally bad when candidate Hillary does it.
A Smooth Transition of leadership is standard practice.
The left made so many complaints about President Trump’s purportedly illegal, borderline treasonous interactions with Russia during the campaign, you’d think they started a self-help group about it. First, liberals alleged that the Trump campaign worked with Russia. Then it was that Russia fixed the election for Trump. More recently, Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ was on the chopping block for meeting with the Russian ambassador as part of his congressional duties. The FBI found no evidence of anything illegal. Was that good enough for liberals? No. They’re still screaming about Trump and the Russians.
But, guess what? Candidate Hillary met Russians, too. Hillary staffers met with the same Russian ambassador who liberals freaked out about when conservatives and Republicans met him. I wonder where the liberal outrage is over that dastardly deed.
Confirming what other commentators have said for weeks, The Hill noted:
“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.”
In the normal course of business, candidate Hillary’s people had regular contact with Russian officials. TREASON! Impeach her! Oh, wait – normal course of business. So, everybody does it? Oh, okay.
But Peskov doubled down. Not only is it normal for U.S. politicians to meet with Russian officials. Russians do it too! In fact, Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak’s job is to meet with officials from both major political parties to talk about “bilateral relations.” How else do they keep Russia and the U.S. from nuking one another?
Specifically responding to irresponsible and hypocritical liberal allegations of wrongdoing, Peskov defended those meetings as normal and not in any way meant 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.
It is very possible that if Hillary won election, those staffers who met with Ambassador Kislyak would be among her cabinet picks. And had she won, this issue probably wouldn’t have come up, let alone been controversial. But Hillary didn’t win. And the left, sadly, is still trying to come to terms with it. Their main coping mechanism: find fault with everything that President Trump does until they force him out.
Those Americans who support our president can rest assured, that’s never going to happen. So, pray for President Trump, to stand firm against those who insist on continually acting against the express wishes of the American people.
So far, we have confirmed that the following Democrats met with Ambassador Kislyak in 2016: Diane Feinstein, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and now Hillary Clinton. How many more is it going to take for the Left to drop their witch hunt against Trump, accept the election results, and move on with their lives? Another election loss in the 2018 midterms, maybe. Well, I’m game.
