President Barack Obama’s spokesman, Josh Earnest, accused President-elect Donald Trump and top members of his team of having “lucrative” ties with Russia, including with RT, Russia’s State-run media service.
“It was the president-elect who refused to disclose his financial connections to Russia,” said Earnest. “It was the president-elect who hired a campaign chairman with extensive, lucrative, personal financial ties to Russia. It was the president-elect who had national security advisor on the campaign that had been a paid contributor to RT, the Russian propaganda outlet.”
Earnest directly accused Trump of not only of turning a blind eye to Russia’s “attempt to destabilize our political system,” but even ordering Moscow to attack Hillary Clinton.
