Key Points: President-elect Mike Pence, American, Russian, contact, and questioning

Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Sunday that there was no contact between Donald Trump’s associates and Russian operatives in regard to hacking during the 2016 campaign.

Pence was also asked about Trump’s suggestions that he would lift sanctions against Russia, calling America’s “terrible relationship” with the Kremlin “a failure of American diplomacy in successive administrations.”

Pence also addressed Trump’s comments that the intelligence community is attempting to undermine him and that the release of a dossier obtained by intelligence agencies is reminiscent of Nazi Germany.
