The President of the United States Donald trump believes that the accusations against him of «conspiring with Russia» interfere with finding areas of cooperation with Moscow, said the Advisor to the President for national security Herbert McMaster.

According to him, it is in this context and discussed the issue of resignation of FBI Director James Comey at the meeting trump with Russian foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

«The essence of the conversation was that the President considers that they are prevented to work with Russia to find areas for cooperation, since this (the dismissal of the Komi Republic — ed.) was constantly in the news,» said MacMaster in an interview with ABC on Sunday.

Trump fired the FBI Director Komi last week, saying that he is unable to lead the Bureau.

Previously, the newspaper the New York Times claimed, citing anonymous sources, that trump told Lavrov about the dismissal of «psycho Komi». Other sensational media headlines on the topic of the meeting included the assumption that the trump Lavrov handed over top-secret information, as well as accusations against the official photographer of the Russian delegation that he could install a listening device in the White house. The Russian foreign Ministry called the publication in the American press a «disgrace».

Earlier, the American special services have accused Russia of hacking into the computers of the National Committee of the US democratic party. On this basis, they concluded that «Russian interference» in the elections. An investigation on the subject carried out the FBI and both houses of Congress. Russia has repeatedly denied the allegations, press Secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov called them «completely unfounded».
