MOSCOW, 6 Jul — RIA Novosti. In the American elections could intervene, both Russia and other countries, said the President of the United States Donald trump during a press conference with President of Poland Andrzej Duda in Warsaw.
This statement trump made the day before the first personal meeting with Vladimir Putin, which will take place on 7 July on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg.
“I think a lot of people interfering. It’s been happening for a long time… many, many years. Barack Obama, when he was President, found out about it… in August (2016 — ed.). The elections were in November. It was a very long time, he did nothing. Why he didn’t do anything about this? He said that it was Russia,” said trump.
According to trump, the ex-President thought that Hillary Clinton needs to win the election, so offered to “do nothing”.
“If he thought differently, he would have done something… If he thought I should win the election, he would have taken a lot of things on this issue”, — said the President.
The Congress has already passed several high-profile hearing on “Russian intervention”, but intelligence officials refused to provide any evidence of this, citing privacy.
In addition, the American mass media regularly publish materials about the contacts of the members of the electoral headquarters of the trump with Russian officials and businessmen, as a rule, citing anonymous sources.
The Russian authorities have repeatedly denied accusations of meddling in the American elections, calling the claims unsubstantiated. As noted by Vladimir Putin, for Russia, such an intervention makes no sense.
