So where is the outrage over this? Why aren’t people pointing the fingers at Hillary? You can bet your money, if Hillary had won, people would be turning a blind eye left and right to this.

The spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday confirmed a Kremlin envoy met with members of the Trump campaign during the election to discuss “bilateral relations” – but he also contacted people linked to the Clinton camp.
Dmitry Peskov, who denied Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential election, said Ambassador Sergey Kislyak huddled with the campaign staffers as part of his diplomatic duties.
“This is his job. He was talking about bilateral relations. He was talking about what is going on in the United States so we have a better understanding in Moscow,” Peskov told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria. “This is what is being performed by every ambassador of Russia abroad, every ambassador of the United States abroad, including in Moscow.”
Asked about Kislyak’s meeting with the staffers for Hillary Clinton, Peskov said, the ambassador met with “people working in think tanks advising Hillary or advising people working for Hillary.”
