Don Lemon has never once asked to see Obama’s alleged evidence that Russia hacked the DNC and John Podesta.
Excerpted From The Hill: Israel’s ambassador the United States says his country will share evidence with President-elect Donald Trump that the Obama administration was behind a United Nations Security Council resolution that condemned Israel’s settlements in Palestinian territory, though the ambassador did not offer the evidence when pressed in a CNN interview.
“We will present this evidence to the new administration through the appropriate channels, and if they want to share it with the American people they are welcome to do it,” Israel’s ambassador, Ron Dermer, told CNN on Monday.
The Security Council voted 14-0 Friday on a resolution that condemns Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory as a “flagrant violation” of international law” and demands a halt to “all Israeli settlement activities” as “essential for salvaging the two-state solution.”
The United States, which has veto power in the Security Council, abstained from the vote, breaking with longstanding U.S. policy to shield Israel from U.N. condemnation and allowing the resolution to pass.
The move prompted widespread backlash against Obama from Republicans and Democrats alike.
It also infuriated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who already has a shaky relationship with Obama. Netanyahu accused the United States of “colluding” with the United Nations in secret and summoned the U.S. ambassador on Sunday.
In the Monday interview, Dermer also accused the United States of being behind the resolution.
“It’s an old story that the United Nations gangs up on Israel,” Dermer said. “What is new is that the United States did not stand up and oppose that gang up. And what is outrageous is that the United States was actually behind that gang up.”
When pressed by CNN host Don Lemon on what evidence Israel has, Dermer said, “We have clear evidence of it,” and added that his country would give that evidence to President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
When pressed further on why it won’t release the evidence publicly now, Dermer reiterated that Israel would give the evidence to the next administration and said it’s up to those officials whether to make it public. Keep reading
