A spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview that Amb. Sergey Kislyak met with advisers to Hillary Clinton's campaign, in addition to his much-publicized talks with Trump campaign aides.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNN's Fareed Zakaria that Kislyak's meetings with Trump advisers were about "bilateral relations."
He was pressed on whether such meetings also occurred with the Clinton campaign.
"If you look at some people connected with Hillary Clinton during her campaign, you would probably see that he had lots of meetings of that kind," said Peskov, who argued that Moscow is being "demonized" for communications with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Peskov denied there was any collaboration with the Trump campaign, claiming the "electoral process" was never discussed with either side.
The comments came on the same day that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said he does not believe the American people have gotten all the answers when it comes to the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.
"I think there's a lot of shoes to drop from this centipede," he said.
Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton discussed the latest developments this morning on FBN with Maria Bartiromo.
