Russian President Vladimir Putin is not as quick to accept that citizens of his nation meddled in the United States 2016 presidential election as American liberals are.
In an interview with NBC, Putin commented on the recent indictment of 13 Russians by the State Department for alleged interference in the election, and he is not convinced.
The majority of people don’t dispute that Russians attempted to interfere in the presidential election in some way.
The truth, that mainstream media is aware of, but ignores, is that interfering in another nations elections is common.
Former President Obama did everything in his power to have Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu voted out of office.
In fact, President Obama’s State Department sent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to an Israeli group that was campaigning to get Prime Minister Netanyahu out of office, The Washington Times reported.
It is gamesmanship that near every international power engages in.
But American Democrats need an excuse to explain why President Donald Trump, a political novice, defeated Hillary Clinton, a seasoned politician who was supposed to win in a landslide.
Show Me The Evidence.
Putin is not as willing to accept the findings of the State Department and wants to see the evidence.
“I have to see first what they’ve done. Give us materials, give us information,” he told NBC‘s Megyn Kelly.
“We can not respond to that if they do not violate Russian laws,” he said.
Kelly told Putin some of the accusations against the Russians made by special counsel Robert Mueller, but Putin was unimpressed.
“With all due respect for you personally, with all due respect for Congress, you must have people with legal degrees, 100 percent you do,” he said.
“This has to go through official channels, not through the press or yelling and hollering in the United States Congress,” he said mockingly.
Putin vowed that he would not extradite the 13 Russians to the United States and he ran circles around Megyn Kelly for the entire interview.
