Rama explains why he did not go to the Assembly today and distances himself once again from "McGonigal"
Prime Minister Edi Rama, who was absent today in the parliament in the interpellation called by DP, spoke this evening on "Top Story" with Grida Duma about the "McGonigal" case and the opposition's accusations.
"They no longer deserve any answer from me," Rama said regarding the opposition's request for a debate motion with him in the Assembly.
"I don't have much to say about this conversation, but since today I refused to be in an assembly hall and engage in a debate with an opposition which is at a frightening ethical level and has dragged me to that level as well sometimes, it is worth to calmly explain those things that can be explained", said Rama.
The prime minister has said that he met with Charles McGonigal after the FBI official requested him. "I met the former senior FBI official at his request. I waited for him in the office. We had a friendly conversation in general terms. I don't see anything extraordinary in this relationship that is normal. It is not the only one that I have with representatives of different agencies", he declared, adding again that he has also met with former US President Donald Trump or even with the current President Biden who are also under investigation by the FBI.
"I have never been approached about any kind of benefit or business by a senior FBI official. My free advisor is from many years ago. Albania has nothing to do with the Russian oligarch," were some of Rama's other arguments.
