Russian govt denies interfering with the U.S election after Hillary Clinton's emails are hacked revealing damaging information

Russia has denied interfering with the U.S presidential elections after Hillary Clinton campaign /Democratic party emails were hacked.

Wikileaks' Julian Assange released series of hacked emails potentially damaging to the Clinton campaign which made the Clinton campaign and the White House immediately release statements blaming Russia for the hacks with the White House promising to give a 'proportional' response instead of denying the contents of the mails.

The hacked mails reveal that the Clinton Campaign shared information with the U.S Department of Justice as regards her 36,000 mails deleted from her private server, the mails also show her supporting open trade deals but criticize open trade deals in public during rallies.
The mails also reveal that Hillary Clinton chose her running mate Tim Kaine over a year ago and not as recently as she made the public to believe. 
Wikileaks Julian Assange has reportedly promised to release more mails in the coming days but Russia's foreign minister Sergey Lavrov has denied Russia's involvement in America's political sphere.

In an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour in Moscow, Lavrov said it was "flattering" that American officials think Russia is meddling in the election, but the accusations were baseless.

"It's flattering, of course, to get this kind of attention -- for a regional power, as President Obama called us some time ago," Lavrov told CNN on Wednesday.

"Now everybody in the United States is saying that it is Russia which is running the [U.S.] presidential debate," he said. "We have not seen a single fact, a single proof."

On the recent lewd remarks on Donald Trump made in a recently released 2005 video, Lavrov remarked, after pointing out English was not his first language, 

"There are so many p**sies around your presidential campaign on both sides that I prefer not to comment."

Asked about this threatened response by the American government on Russia for the email hacks, Lavrov said: "It's not worth, I believe, speculating. If they decided to do something, let them do it. But to say that Russia is interfering in the United States' domestic matters, is ridiculous."

Many Americans, since the mail leaks, have called on Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta to resign but he said it was "a reasonable conclusion, that… the Trump campaign had advance warning about what Assange was going to do."
''WikiLeaks seems to be doing everything they can on behalf of our opponent,"

Russia's president Vladmir Putin has also revealed that influencing the American election is not one of Russia's interests.

"There was a whole hysteria about that being of interest to Russia, but there is nothing within the interest of Russia," Putin said, speaking at an investment forum in Moscow on Wednesday.
Putin said he didn't see why Russia was a "main issue in the election campaign," and that it was "gratifying but puzzling."

In a joint statement, the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said the intelligence community is "confident" the hacks and documents published by WikiLeaks and DCLeaks.com and those claimed to have been carried out by a hacker known as Guccifer 2.0 are "consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts."

"These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the U.S. election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow – the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there," the statement reads. "We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized these activities."

"It would be extremely difficult for someone, including a nation-state actor, to alter actual ballot counts or election results by cyber attack or intrusion," they said. "This assessment is based on the decentralized nature of our election system in this country and the number of protections state and local election officials have in place."

It's obvious that pretense cannot stand the test of time! I'd rather go for the blunt and open minded beings than the deep secret water that eat up the tubers! Pretentious beings are the reason the world is this way.

Shut ur trap ogbona or wateva u call u... Hilary is a liar and a she- devil just like Obama d he- devil.. They have a very dangerous agenda for the whole world and only opposing world powers like Russia and my man Putin can stop them in their tracks.. You hit Russia and Russia hits u back capish!!Trump will rid the world of terrorism but Hilary doesn't want that cos Obama d Muslim president from Africa is benefitting from it.. Let's not forget that Isis is a fabrication of the CIA to have the world on Americas side but other world leaders like Putin and Pyongyang know better and that's why America doesn't like them.. America is using terrorism to control the world .. They took out ghadaffi of Libya cos he doesn't dance to their tune and now the once very peaceful Libya is at its worst state( America was ere).. They took out Jonathan of Nigeria cos he doesn't dance to their tune now see where Nigeria is headed with the illiterate buhari they put there .. It's no coincidence my people ..Stop walking around with your EYES WIDE SHUT...
