Trump Says He Takes Putin at His Word that He Didn’t Interfere in Election
Think about THAT. Trump doesn’t believe the women who accuse Roy Moore; he tells us not to believe the women who accuse HIMSELF. He tells us NOT to believe our own intelligence agencies. But we ought to believe Vladimir Putin.
“Trump said he took Putin at his word that Russia did not seek to interfere in the US presidential election last year, despite a finding from US intelligence agencies that it did. The fraught relations between the two leaders was underscored anew when Putin’s spokesman said election meddling did not come up when they spoke, even though Trump said it did.”
“And he stressed that bigger issues persist between the United States and Russia that require the two leaders to move on.”
Sure. I mean Russia interfering in an American Presidential election that’s just no big whoop. Let’s get the important stuff like giving Putin everything he ever dreamed of in terms of Rex Tillerson dismantling the State Department root and branch not implementing the new sanctions Congress imposed on Russia and giving Syria over to Assad.
“He said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One as he flew from Da Nang to Hanoi in Vietnam. Trump spoke to Putin three times on the sidelines of summit here, where the Russia meddling issue arose.”
“Every time he sees me, he says, ‘I didn’t do that,'” Trump said. “And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it.”
Evidently, Trump looked inside Putin’s soul just like W did.
“On Friday, Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin were seen shaking hands at a summit while wearing matching outfits. It was a surreal photo op for the ages (even though the matching outfits are tradition for the summit in question), and a reminder that one of these two men installed the other in office as a puppet. Behind the scenes, however, we saw a piece of evidence this week that made clear Putin has given up on his failed investment in Trump.”
“Although we know that Putin and Russia bent over backward to rig the 2016 election in Trump’s favor, numerous theories have abounded as to why they went to the trouble. Relatively few people have a sufficient understanding of Putin’s specific goal: it wasn’t just to create generic chaos for the West, or achieve general control over the Oval Office, though those were supposed to be bonuses. The real story is that Putin has personally lost billions of dollars (not millions, but billions) as a result of U.S. sanctions on Russia.”
True though he has gained a lot too as we enumerated above in terms of Syria policy, dismantling the State Department etc.
P.S. I’m Mike Sax, I’m running for Congress in the NY 2nd District and I’m a Hillary Clinton Democrat.
Meeting her recently was one of the biggest honors in my life to stand next to such a fine public servant and trailblazer. She seemed to like our Impeachment Train campaign t shirts too!
Think of the shirt as a one time investment in restoring legitimacy to this country.
