The Associated Press‘ Julie Pace told the panel on CNN’s Inside Politics that there is actually nothing wrong with Trump aides meeting with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The panel was discussing recent reporting regarding senior Trump aides meeting with Russian officials during the 2016 presidential campaign and the possible political fallout from these meetings.
“There’s actually nothing wrong with any of the meetings that happened. There actually wasn’t anything wrong with Mike Flynn talking to the Russian ambassador during the transition and really probably nothing wrong with him talking about what the Trump administration was going to do once they took office,” Pace told the panel.
Pace went on to elaborate, “But the fact that you have two major figures, put aside the Carter Pager’s and J.D. Gordon’s of the world even, but two major figures in Trump’s campaign and Trump’s administration, Jeff Sessions and Mike Flynn who have both given misleading answers publicly and privately about their contacts with the same Russian ambassador, is just confounding that that happened.”
