Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders looked America in the eye on Friday and accused Hillary Clinton of colluding with the Russians during the 2016 election.
Huckabee Sanders called the Russia investigation a waste of money, and added, “I think that our position hasn’t changed since day one, and I think we are seeing now that if there was any collusion with Russia it was between the DNC and the Clintons and certainly not our campaign.”
The claim that Clinton colluded with Russia makes zero sense. Funding opposition research about things that the Russians and Trump did not want publicly known is not collusion. Hillary Clinton did not work with the Russians. Clinton didn’t tell the Russians to hack Donald Trump and get his emails, as Trump told Russia during a press conference.
The whole blame Hillary Clinton excuse is a distraction. Hillary Clinton didn’t collude with Russia, but there is a growing mountain of evidence that the Trump campaign worked with Russia to win the election. The White House now has an official position on Russia collusion that is a total lie, and this moment will go down in history as very second when the entire White Hosue was exposed as complicit in the Trump/Russia cover-up.
