Russians say US media claims that Trump is a Russian agent are 'stupid'
Top Kremlin officials are scoffing at the idea that President Donald Trump is working as a Russian agent, dismissing the notion as “nonsense” and blasting U.S. journalists for their attention to the issue.The media looks like it is a co-conspirator with paranoid FBI officials who were engaged in a coup attempt against the President. The media and the FBI look pretty foolish in pushing this absurd narrative.
“That’s stupid,” said Yuri Ushakov, a foreign policy aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg News. “How can the president of the United States be an agent of another country? Just think about that.”
The White House was hit with a pair of bombshell reports over the weekend that involve Trump and Putin, including one from The New York Times that revealed the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into Trump in 2017 over whether he was wittingly or unwittingly working on Russia’s behalf.
Another report, from The Washington Post, revealed that Trump has sought to conceal the details of his meetings with Putin from members of his administration, possibly in an effort to avoid leaks.
Trump this week rejected both reports, telling reporters Monday that he “never worked for Russia.”
