Huntsman: No question Russian Federation interfered in USA election

Huntsman: No question Russian Federation interfered in USA election”

Jon Huntsman, President Donald Trump's nominee to be USA ambassador to Russian Federation, told Congress Tuesday that Moscow's meddling in the 2016 presidential election led directly to the lack of trust between the two former Cold War foes.

Huntsman, a former Republican governor of Utah and ambassador to China, labeled the USA relationship with Russian Federation "among the most consequential and complex foreign policy challenges we face". "Russia also restricts the human rights of its own people".

His remarks about Russian Federation were unprompted, the Salt Lake Tribune notes.

And in January, days before President Donald Trump took office, the United States intelligence community concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered an "influence campaign" aimed at hurting Trump's rival, Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton.

"Well, I think it was Russian Federation, and I think it could have been other people in other countries".

Huntsman had always been expected to be the official choice for the key diplomatic post, with sources telling CNN in March that he had accepted an offer for the job.
