Putin opposes Hillary Clinton more than he supports Trump

NY Times:

To Democrats, Hack Hints Trump Has New Backer: Putin

A breach tied to Russia has raised questions about whether President Vladimir V. Putin is supporting Donald J. Trump.

This is about Hillary and not about Trump. He has never forgiven her for what he saw as interference with his run for reelection back in 2011.
...
“She set the tone for certain actors inside the country; she gave the signal,” Putin said of Clinton at the time, accusing her of ordering the opposition movement into action like some kind of revolutionary sleeper cell. “They heard this signal and, with the support of the U.S. State Department, started actively doing their work.”
...
It is also how he can justify in his own mind the interference with the US election process.   What makes it even better for him, is that he is able to use the Democrats' own words to harm their political chances.  At some point, she must have turned off the reset button.

The Democrats are running their own disinformation campaign about the hack:

Democrats Allege D.N.C. Hack Is Part of Russian Effort to Elect Donald Trump


Officials in Philadelphia for the party’s national convention sought to spread the idea that the Kremlin wanted to see Mr. Trump elected instead of Hillary Clinton.
The NY Times is pushing this narrative while ignoring the obvious.
