“I had nothing to do with it,” Trump said when asked by a reporter about his ties to Russia at a press conference Thursday.
“I have nothing to do with Russia. I told you, I have no deals there, I have no anything. Now, when WikiLeaks, which I had nothing to do with, comes out and happens to give, they’re not giving classified information. They’re giving stuff — what was said at an office about Hillary cheating on the debates. Which, by the way, nobody mentions.”
“Nobody mentions that Hillary received the questions to the debates,” he continued. “Can you imagine — seriously — can you imagine if I received the questions? It would be the electric chair. OK, he should be put in the electric — you would even call for the re-institution of the death penalty, OK.”
