“We did not hack the election at all,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin to “Snowden” director Oliver Stone in the fourth and final part of Showtime’s fascinating series, “The Putin Interviews.”

The Russian leader was more fiery than ever in a conversation that took place in February of this year — after Donald Trump had been inaugurated and after conspiracy theories about Russia’s potential hacking of the presidential election became the favorite expression of upset over the election results among Democrats and the media.

If Putin ran for office here, I’d support him over any Democrat.

Same here. And to think the leftist media here is giving the old USSR media a run for their money about the amount of propaganda currently present is mind boggling that it has gotten this bad.

Obama creating a mine field for Trump is the tip of an iceberg that DC has become for decades. The swamp has been festering for much longer than the Obama administration.

I fear this bloodless coup will either tie up or remove Trump. These leftist scum need to be addressed and now.

Agreed. Putin does not love America, and he is not our friend. However, our interests coincide with Russia's in several areas and he would do his best for Russia and thus for America in those areas. Today's Ctrl-Left viscerally hates America and will do everything possible to harm America in any way they can. It's no contest - Putin wins.

So would I. Putin loves mother Russia. Trump loves AMERICA. The Democrats are damned dogs in the manger, attacking the very nation that birthed and nourished them. They are irredeemable scum.

So true- to live in a time when I get to hear a dictator criticize the DemProgs- and our media- is just wild.

My late grandfather left Russia in the 1920s and came here for freedom and truth and all that America stood for, so to hear this stuff coming from Russia is just surreal to me...

[Putin] said Russia was merely an "instrument" for an internal political war in America.
What Alfred Hitchcock referred to as "the Macguffin."

He added that the vilification of Russia felt “like hatred for a certain ethnic group. Like anti-Semitism.” He said Russia was merely an “instrument” for an internal political war in America.

Bingo.

Putin also grasps the problem with the bureaucracy and how hard it really is for a president to change to course of this country.

Putin understands these things and states the situation bluntly. He's not a nice guy, I think, but he understands the world. The Left in this country (Democrats and Media and Academia) seem to understand nothing or perhaps be incapable of stating the truth about anything.

Just like reading speeches off the teleprompter everything Obama did was supplied for him. George Soros was a big allay as Sorros was creating chaos for profit and demonicrats were co conspirators for power.

It’s funny how the American left spent the entire Cold War sympathizing with the Soviets, but now they want everyone to see Russia as the world’s great evil power. According to the left it is now our patriotic duty to hate Russia. I swear it comes down to the homosexual agenda. Russia is standing athwart “progress” in that area and so it has become the left’s ideological enemy.

So far The Scalese shooting is an aberration.

Had the clown taken out(killed) 4-8 republican politicians as he had the opportunity but not the skill set to do...it may have snowballed.

All of this is to keep Obama and Hillary protected. It keeps Trump busy and the Republicans cannot look into the corruption of those two and it seems the legal profession and the media are aiding their coverup. Wake up Republicans.

“I think that Obama’s outgoing team has created a minefield for the incoming president and for his team. They have created an environment which makes it difficult for him to make good on the promises given to the people,” said Putin.

He is not wrong about that.

I think Putin understands the U.S. and Americans pretty well.

Republican swamp monsters like McCain and Graham would rather have a democrat than Trump. The Republican Party is garbage.
