The Kremlin on Monday again denied charges Moscow was behind the hacking of Democratic Party emails, calling Hillary Clinton’s allegations that Russian intelligence services were responsible for the cyber break-in absurd and emotional.
“Such pronouncements by Mrs Clinton are of the pre-election rhetoric genre and do not contain anything tangible,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.
On Sunday, Clinton told Fox News that “we know that Russian intelligence services, which is part of the Russian government, which is under the firm control of Vladimir Putin, hacked into the DNC. And we know that he arranged for a lot of those emails to be released.”
The Kremlin has repeatedly denied it was involved in hacking into the Democratic National Committee computers and said it does not favor any candidate in the Nov. 8 U.S. election.
