MOSCOW (Sputnik) – US President Donald Trump confirmed to The Washington Submit that he had approved a cyberattack on Russia’s Web Analysis Company in 2018.
Earlier this week, Trump advised the columnist of The Washington Submit, Marc Thiessen, that he had ordered the 2018 cyberattack on the Web Analysis Company, which is accused by america of spearheading the interference within the 2016 US presidential election.
“Correct”, Trump advised The Washington Submit, answering the query, whether or not he had launched the 2018 cyberattack.
The US president burdened that no person had been more durable on Russia than him.
“[Former President Barack Obama] knew before the election that Russia was playing around. Or, he was told. Whether or not it was so or not, who knows? And he said nothing. And the reason he said nothing was that he didn’t want to touch it because he thought [Hillary Clinton] was winning because he read phony polls. So, he thought she was going to win. And we had the silent majority that said, ‘No, we like Trump'”, Trump added.
On 18 April 2019, the US Justice Division launched the ultimate report of Particular Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of Trump-Russia collusion and Russian interference within the US election. The particular counsel discovered no collusion between Russian officers and Trump’s marketing campaign however stated that Moscow tried to intrude within the election.
Russia has repeatedly refuted the accusations, saying it has by no means meddled within the US inner affairs.
