Former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told 60 Minutes that he reacted with “surprise, disappointment, disbelief” when in 2017 President Trump told reporters he believed Vladimir Putin when he denied interfering in the 2016 US election.
McMaster said he and other advisers “had a conversation with the president afterwards, we said, ‘Your answer to that question will be misconstrued as a complete denial of Russian meddling when we know it’s incontrovertible. It’s just, it’s just a fact.’”
McMaster is promoting his new book, Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World.Save to Favorites
