I believe Putin
“They caused this [anti-Russian] hysteria with a sole goal to distract the public from the essence of what the hackers leaked,” Putin said at an economic forum in Moscow, referring to the hacking allegations.
“It’s basically a way of manipulating public opinion, but for some reason nobody discusses that. They only talk about who did it.”
Putin dismissed the notion that the leaks were in line with Russian goals. The Democrat camp claims that Moscow favors Donald Trump as the next US president and is using cyberwarfare to manipulate the outcome of the November vote.
“They say it was in Russia’s interest. There are no Russian interests involved,” he stated.
This is not to say that Putin should always be believed, but he’s no more of a liar than Obama or the Clintons.
For some reason, the Hillary campaign believes they can win votes by linking Trump to Russia, because they believe that blue-collar whites hate the Russians, and they will vote Hillary if they think Russia is somehow connected to Trump.
What a bunch of hypocrites and liars they are! Back in 2012, the liberals and the Democrats all had a big laugh when Obama told Romney during a debate that “the 1980s are now calling and they want their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.” (Watch on YouTube.)
Anyway, if Russia has the capability to hack into the email accounts of VIPs, I don’t see how it benefits Russia by sending the info to WikiLeaks. It would benefit Russia to keep it secret so that the Americans don’t beef up their cybersecurity. Also, according to Hillary Clinton, Trump is dangerous and will start a nuclear war. All those nuclear missiles are pointed at Russia. If the Clinton campaign believed any of its own rhetoric, then notion that Putin would help to elect the candidate who might obliterate him off the map is absolutely ludicrous.
The idea that the hack is coming from the Russian government is too conveniently beneficial to the Clinton campaign to be believed.
