Robby Mook won’t personally confirm or deny whether Clinton campaign had any contact with Russia

Maybe she did. Maybe she didn’t.

Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager was unable to clearly confirm or deny if the Clinton campaign had any contact with the Russians.

“Did anyone from the Clinton campaign ever meet with officials from the Kremlin during the campaign?” MSNBC’s Craig Melvin asked Robby Mook on Friday.

Clinton’s top campaign adviser couldn’t confirm the answer himself but deferred to others in the know.

“The folks that were managing that within the campaign have said that there were none, no meetings like that,” Mook said.

“I think it’s important to step back and not look at this as a question of whether people were meeting with foreign officials,” he added.

Strangely, it seems that’s what all the hysteria from the left has been about.

Democrats have been in an uproar for days calling for the resignation of Attorney General Sessions for not revealing that he met with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. during the election campaign. But the demands for Sessions’ head on a plate seem like political theater to critics who feel Democrats are operating under a double standard.

President Donald Trump called out Democratic Sen.Chuck Schumer on Friday for being a “hypocrite” after a 2003 photo surfaced of the New York senator with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He called for an investigation of Schumer and later called for another one of Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, whose claim that she never met with the Russian envoy was proved false.

Mook contended that the real issue was that Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee ultimately cost Clinton the presidency and helped Trump get elected.
