Why Hillary Clinton’s Team Could Have Been Behind Obama’s Anti-Russian Sanctions

SPUTNIKNEWS – December 31, 2016: The Obama administration’s latest anti-Russia sanctions resemble nothing so much as vengeance toward US President-elect Donald Trump, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova told Sputnik. Russian newspaper Vzglyad echoed Zakharova, suggesting that Hillary Clinton’s team could have been behind the White House’s latest move.

It appears that the outgoing Obama administration is trying to wreak revenge on US President-elect Donald Trump over his victory in the 2016 presidential election, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova remarked in an interview with Sputnik, commenting on the latest anti-Russian sanctions introduced by Barack Obama. “Honestly, there is a feeling that the Democratic team is now just trying to take revenge on Trump for the victory, taking plainly absurd decisions a month before his inauguration,” Zakharova told Sputnik on Saturday.

The Obama administration’s move resembles nothing so much as an act of vengeance directed at their successors, according to Vzglyad’s political analyst Evgeny Krutikov. However, the analyst believes that Hillary Clinton’s team could have been behind the decision to expel 35 Russian diplomats and impose sanctions on Moscow over the so-called “vote hacking.” Link: Read Complete Article
