Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein on Saturday said she attended a Russian TV network dinner with Russian President Vladimir Putin because she wanted to help create peace in the Middle East.

“They had just begun bombing Syria at the time. And I was there to propose that we do a 180 and that we collaborate in fact on a peace offensive, specifically a weapons embargo to the Middle East, and a freeze on the bank accounts of those countries, our various allies, that continue to fund terrorist enterprises,” Stein said on MSNBC Live with Alex Witt.

Former national security adviser Michael Flynn also attended the 2015 dinner, and both sat at the same table with Putin, their appearance criticized as the FBI and both houses of Congress investigate possible collusion by Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.  

“We’re certainly interested in any efforts the Russians made to influence our election,” Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told Politico. “There have been public reports, I think, that Jill Stein was also in Russia attending the RT function, so we’re going to need to look at any efforts the Russians made through whatever means to influence our elections.”
