Trump Accuses Clinton Of Having ‘Close Ties To Putin’

The Donald Trump campaign, burned by allegations that the Republican presidential nominee admires the president of Russia and that one of his aides received millions of dollars from a Ukrainian political party, declared this week that Hillary Clinton’s “close ties to Putin deserve scrutiny.”

The billionaire businessman’s staffers cited the Democratic candidate’s links to Russian officials while she was secretary of state, as well as some of the contributions she solicited for the Clinton Foundation. CNN accused Trump of “inaccurately citing government reports and comments, and ignoring that many of Clinton’s efforts came as part of the Obama administration’s broader efforts to improve ties with Russia.”

The news network pointed out that Trump previously said Clinton had failed to foster a relationship with the Russian leader. “You know she hates Putin and Putin hates her, right?” he asked earlier this month in Wisconsin. “That’s what I hear.” At a campaign event in Virginia, the GOP nominee told the crowd: “She has terrible relationships with Putin.”

Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin said Trump “continues to push pro-Putin policies, and is trying to deflect from the bombshell news about troubling connections between his team and pro-Kremlin elements in Ukraine by hurling false attacks from the author of the widely debunked book ‘Clinton Cash.’”

Schwerin continued: “We have called on Trump to disclose campaign chair Paul Manafort’s and all other campaign employees’ and advisers’ ties to Russian or pro-Kremlin entities.”
