"There's concrete evidence of the coziness between the Clintons and Russia," Boris Epshteyn said on Fox News.

Epshteyn slammed Clinton during the interview, calling her a lifelong liar before pivoting to the Democratic nominee and her husband's ties to Russia.

He called stories of the GOP nominee's links to Russia a "ridiculous narrative by the left." 

"The Clintons are the ones that have real connections to Russia," he said.

He said former President Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a 90-minute speech he gave in Moscow and claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin called the former president personally to thank him.

News outlets, he says, are "grasping at straws" about Trump's relationship with Russia.

In the past, critics have accused Trump of sympathizing with Russia, pointing to the candidate's praise of Putin and to campaign staffers who have ties to Russia.

Trump has disputed claims that he has any financial ties to Russia.
