Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman’s two-minute video he filmed for the non-profit ‘Committee to Investigate Russia’ (CIR), claiming that Moscow meddled in the US election, can hardly be taken seriously, the Kremlin said.

“Many creative people easily become victims of emotional overload while not possessing credible information about the true state of things,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding such cases are manifestations of a “follow-up to McCarthyism.”

Maria Zakharova, the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said she believed that Freeman’s role in the clip is similar to that of former US Secretary of State Colin Powell. During a UN Security Council session in 2003, Powell infamously used a model of a vial, which, he said, was similar to those used by Saddam Hussein’s government to store biological weapons. The claim was proven false when no weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq by invading US forces.

“We’ll find out who stands behind this story faster than we learned about the contents of the vial,” Zakharova said in Facebook post.
