Vladimir Putin fretted to a group of oligarchs that he had no real contacts in Donald Trump’s inner circle and struggled to reach the president-elect in the days after the 2016 election, according to Robert Mueller’s special counsel report released on Thursday.
The Russian leader was so anxious to contact Trump that he reportedly had an intermediary cold-call Trump’s then-spokesperson, Hope Hicks, on her cellphone in the middle of the night after the Republican nominee claimed victory, according to the report.
The article goes on to state the following:
“At approximately 3 a.m. on election night, Trump Campaign press secretary Hope Hicks received a telephone call on her personal cell phone from a person who sounded foreign but was calling from a number with a DC area code,” said the report. “Although Hicks had a hard time understanding the person, she could make out the words ‘Putin call.’”
Hicks told investigators that she asked the caller to email her, and the next day she received an email with a message attached from Putin congratulating Trump on his election and expressing interest in working with the president-elect.
