In an interview with Sputnik, senior research fellow at the Center for Military and Political Studies at the Institute for USA and Canadian Studies Vladimir Batyuk believes that the Democrats found another pretext to justify their loss in the presidential election.
"Of course, there is no evidence, but Democrats are actively raising this issue," the expert told Sputnik. "The leadership of the Democratic Party has to explain to its party members why the Democratic Party lost election that it was expected to win. In this case, the "Russian involvement" could be the best justification and explanation for the leadership of the Democratic Party," Batyuk told Radio Sputnik.
"They are looking for an excuse. Some Democrats do not give up hope of finding clues, anything that would allow starting the impeachment proceedings against the 45th US president. Although I must say the campaign has exhausted lately. This "witch hunt" went too far, it's time to finish it, and even the mass media, including those unfriendly towards Trump, have to admit it," the expert said.
The US intelligence service repeatedly accused US President Donald Trump of having won the US elections because of an alleged Russian interference, but failed to provide any evidence. Donald Trump has repeatedly denied these allegations, while Moscow has called them absurd and groundless.
