Here's What Jill Stein Had to Say About Her Dinner With Putin

22 Décembre 2017

As the Senate continues to investigate any potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, its gaze has turned to Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein.

She added: "Some have declared that we should be going to war now, and I think that means the American public really needs to be fully informed".

"There was no translator at the table", Stein said on CNN's "OutFront with Erin Burnett". "Vladimir Putin came in very late, with three, four people that I thought were his bodyguards, turns out they were core people in his administration, but you never would have known that". Mainstream Democrats have criticized Stein for attending a 2015 dinner in Russia that was also attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin and future White House national security adviser Michael Flynn. "Russians spoke Russian, I spoke to the only person in earshot who spoke English, who was a German diplomat that was sitting to my right".

Despite those attempts to brush the investigation aside, several leading Trump campaign members have been revealed to have had contact with Russian officials. Flynn pleaded guilty earlier this month to lying to the FBI in the special counsel investigation. "So it was really quite a non-event".

Rangers approached Derek McInnes earlier this month but the Aberdeen boss turned down the opportunity to make the move to Glasgow. Murty was placed in temporary charge at the Scottish Premiership club following the October sacking of Pedro Caixinha.

"That picture has been circulated, sort of a factless photograph, that's been used to smear our campaign for a better part of a year", Stein told Pamela Brown on CNN.

Stein re-entered headlines this week when it was announced that Senate investigators are looking into Stein's 2016 campaign for possible connections to Russian Federation.

"They have it in as well because it's very inconvenient to have, you know, an opposition political party that's not taking orders from the same suspects", Stein said.

Stein, who was the Green Party nominee for president in 2012 and 2016, came in fourth place and received about 1 percent of the vote nationally last November.
