CNN reported Wednesday that Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak is considered by US intelligence to be one of Russia’s top spies and spy-recruiters in Washington, citing current and former senior US government officials.But asked by CNN’s team in Moscow about the report, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova insisted Kislyak was “a well-known, world-class diplomat.”She added, “He was deputy minister of foreign affairs in Russia, who has communicated with American colleagues for decades in different fields, and CNN accused him of being a Russian spy … of recruiting? Oh my God!”
After a Senate confirmation battle that came down to a tie-breaking vote from the Vice President, Betsy DeVos stood up in front of her new team for the first time since being sworn in.
“For me personally, this confirmation process and the drama … has been a bear,” she said.
