Putin disputes Democrat narrative on 2016 election in US
In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Vladimir Putin again denied meddling in the 2016 presidential election and peddled the conspiracy theory it was really the work of the US intelligence community.Putin denied most of the other allegations that have arisen in the news media about the Trump team and Russia. It is clear that from his statements he is not going to say anything to support the Democrat liberal media narrative. For that reason, it is likely that they will call him a liar and push on with their witch hunt.
“There’s a theory that Kennedy’s assassination was arranged by the United States Intelligence services,” Putin said. “So if this theory is correct and that can’t be ruled out, then what could be easier, in this day and age, than using all the technical means at the disposal of the intelligence services, and using those means to organize some attacks, and then pointing the finger at Russia.”
In further denying Russia’s role in the 2016 election, Putin said he “doesn’t care” who the president is.
“Presidents come and go, and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change… That’s why, in the grand scheme of things, we don’t care who’s the head of the United States,” Putin said. “We know more or less what is going to happen.”
Kelly pressed Putin on whether he has any dossier or embarrassing dirt on President Trump that could be used to blackmail the commander-in-chief.
“This is just another load of nonsense,” Putin said. “Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him? We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him. We have a lot of Americans who visit us.”
