White House Press Secretary Accuses Trump Team of Coordinating with Putin

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest accused Donald Trump’s transition team of coordinating with Russian President Vladimir Putin at Tuesday’s White House press conference.

ABC News’ Jonathan Karl asked Earnest about Putin’s allegation that the Obama administration has been attempting to delegitimize the incoming Trump administration.

“First of all, it sounds like he got his copy of the talking points,” Earnest quipped.

Karl asked Earnest from whom Putin had received these talking points.

“Well, I don’t know. It certainly sounds a lot like what the incoming administration’s team is saying. But it is not the first time that the Russian president has called into question the veracity of the United States government.”
