White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Saturday accused Hillary Clinton‘s campaign of colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential race, claiming that the evidence is “indisputable.”
President Trump’s top spokeswoman made the claim on Twitter a day after reports emerged indicating that the first charges had been filed in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russia.
“Clinton spokesman just said he’s ‘damn glad’ Clinton campaign colluded w/ Russia to spread disinformation about @POTUS & influence election,” Sanders said on Twitter.
“The evidence Clinton campaign, DNC & Russia colluded to influence the election is indisputable,” she wrote in another tweet linking to an article from a conservative news site.
