-I haven't seen even once, any direct proof
of Russian interference in the presidential election
in the United States.

-IP addresses, they can be invented, you know?
There are a lot of specialists who can even make it
so it comes from your home IP address,
as if your three-year-old daughter carried out the attack.
-If the Russians actually hacked this situation
and spelled out those e-mails you would've never seen it,
you would've never had any evidence.
-The oligarchs in Ukraine finance that candidate,
you know, all that candidate lady.
-The fact that Russia was so aggressive
does not exclude the fact that President Poroshenko
actively worked for Secretary Clinton.

Maybe they're Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews
just with Russian citizenship.

in the presidential elections? -They absolutely did.
And I don't know to what extent the Ukrainians did.

in the elections in the United States!
Now they are accusing Ukraine.

interferes with the electoral campaigns of other countries.
