Robby Mook Won’t Give a Straight Answer on Whether or Not Clinton Campaign Had Contact with Kremlin

In an appearance on MSNBC Friday, former Hillary Clinton Campaign Manager Robby Mook dodged giving a straight answer on whether Clinton campaign officials had contact with the Russian government.

Avoiding personal responsibility, Mook said, “The folks that were managing that within the campaign have said that there were none.” Apparently, as the Campaign Manager of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Mook was not one of “the folks that were managing” contact with foreign governments.

“I think it’s important to step back and not look at this as a question of whether people were meeting with foreign officials,” Mook said, pointing out that foreign officials often attend political conventions.

Mook then pivoted to implying that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government based on their campaign contacts.
