White House press secretary Sean Spicer questioned the Democrat right to accuse President Trump over improper contact with Russia. He criticized the Obama administration for their own Russian relations, citing Hillary Clinton’s uranium deals with the Russian government. He also questioned why the DNC had refused to allow the F.B.I. to view their computer servers if they indeed had nothing to hide.
Spicer put the question forth, “from everything that has been publicly available, on several occasions, the DNC was asked by the F.B.I. to alleviate all their concerns about leaking, yet that question still hasn’t come out. Why would the DNC on multiple occasions rebuff the F.B.I? … If they were so concerned with leaks and hacking, why did they not allow the F.B.I. to come look?”
He wondered why Obama and Clinton weren’t being investigated, “When you look at the Obama administration and the Clintons’ involvement with Russia, in terms of donations they received from Russian entities… yet where was the concern for that? What are we doing to look into that?”
“It was the Obama administration in 2009 that talked about a reset with Russia and a desire to reset relationships. It was Hillary Clinton who signed off on a deal that gave a Russian company one-fifth the U.S.’ uranium supply… Where is the concern on the Hillary Clinton thing?”
Spicer claimed that the allegations against the Trump administration were unfair and one-sided. “Where’s the parity when it comes to these types of investigations?” he asked.
