Russia does not interfere in the affairs of other states, and statements about the presence of compromising evidence on the United States are nothing more than an indicator of the internal struggle of American political groups, Alexei Chepa, first deputy chairman of the State Duma’s international affairs committee, told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, the columnist for the American newspaper Wall Street Journal, Holman W. Jenkins, Jr., wrote that Russia has compromising material that is dangerous for any American government, because of which, from the very preparation for the 2016 elections, Republicans and Democrats found themselves in a stupid position. The author noted that almost all American presidents, regardless of party affiliation, tried to establish a dialogue with Moscow, which, he is sure, is able to turn the entire US political elite upside down if specific data are published.
“I don’t know what kind of dirt on the Americans is, we do not build relations between our countries on this … We do not interfere in the internal affairs of America, we have never tried to interfere,” Chepa stressed.
The politician called such statements short-sighted, these are “extremely dangerous and unsteady positions.”
“Such statements are an internal struggle between Democrats and Republicans, between various financial, political and business clans in the United States, nothing else. And attempts to play the Moscow card here are wrong,” the parliamentarian stated.
