Vladimir Putin has denied any involvement in the multiple instances of poisonings, despite the evidence.
Vladimir Putin denied any Russian involvement in attempting to interfere and influence the 2016 US elections, despite the overwhelming evidence of the contrary.
Vladimir Putin has denied any Russian involvement in attempting to interfere and influence the 2018 midterm elections, despite recent evidence to the contrary.
On Friday, the Department of Justice just indicted Elena Khusyaynova, a Russian, for working to interfere in our 2018 midterm elections.
She allegedly used money from the Russian government that had been laundered to hide its origin, to target certain demographic groups in hopes of swaying American voters.
Washington Examiner – Following the Department of Justice’s indictment on Friday of Elena Khusyaynova, for targeting the U.S. midterm elections, President Trump should work with Congress to impose significant new sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime.
Because Khusyaynova is not a weird civilian who managed tens-of-millions of dollars in private money to troll Americans. Instead, Khusyaynova is a government cutout who used privately laundered Russian government money in order to disrupt the U.S. midterm elections and society at large. She was chosen for this role because she was trusted to follow orders while offering the Kremlin a pretense of deniability. Funded by a more senior cutout, the troll farmer, Yevgeny Prigozhin, Khusyaynova’s effort fits with prior and ongoing Russian operations. I noted in July, for example, that a senior U.S. official had informed me that the Russian government was targeting marginal Republican seats that might feasibly fall to Democratic candidates.
Regardless, the DOJ indictment is clear about what Khusyaynova and her team were intending by their nefarious actions…
It’s only a matter of time before Democrats again accuse Donald Trump or those associated with him of conspiring with Khusyaynova to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections.
Obviously, Vladimir Putin cannot be trusted to tell the truth about anything, which isn’t surprising since he rose up through the ranks of Russia’s spy agency.
Let’s also remember that China has been found to be trying to interfere and influence the 2018 elections.
What I want to know is how many other countries has the United States interfered in their elections or with their leadership, such as Egypt, Libya, Iran, Panama, Grenada , etc…
