Former US Vice President Dick Cheney accused Russia of “interfering” in the US election, saying that it was an “act of war.” Political scientist Pavel Svyatenkov told Radio Sputnik that the US politician wants to “splash gasoline” in the election scandal to manipulate Donald Trump.

Svyatenkov recalled that Dick Cheney previously worked in the administrations of Republican presidents George Bush Sr. and George W. Bush.

“This is when a part of the Republican elite that is associated with the Bush group — both the elder and the younger — comes into the game,” the expert said.

According to the expert, Cheney played an important role in the Bush administration — he held the post of defense minister and vice president and many believed him to be an extremely influential “shadow ruler” of America.

“Therefore, the fact that now Cheney makes such statements means that there is an attempt to pour gasoline into the scandal, and a serious split among the Republican elite,”Svyatenkov noted.

In his opinion, such statements are, first of all, directed against Donald Trump.

“Such tough statements are used to manipulate the Trump administration,” the expert noted, adding that “this is one of the reasons why Donald Trump can’t now improve relations with Russia, as he promised, because — due to hysteria in the media and among the elite — he will be presented as a “Russian spy.” Therefore, Trump is very limited in his actions, unlike most American presidents, he does not have “freedom of action” in foreign policy. He has to consider the position within his party and within the country as a whole,” the expert explained.
