Russian President Vladimir Putin has disgustingly claimed without evidence, that Jews with Russian citizenship could have been behind interference in 2016’s US presidential election.
In an interview with NBC News broadcast Friday, the Russian president stated that he “could not care less” about indictments issued by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller accusing Russian nationals and companies of election interference, stating that “they do not represent the interests of the Russian state” and are unrelated to the Kremlin. “Maybe they’re not even Russians,” said Putin. “Maybe they’re Ukrainians, Tatars, Jews, just with Russian citizenship, even that needs to be checked.”

Notice how Putin’s excuse making for interference in the 2016 election completely mirrors Trump’s. Trump blamed it on possibly being some “fat guy in a basement” and sounded the same as Putin did here. It is a coincidence that these two are the only ones making these excuses and disagreeing with the consensus of the U.S. intel community?
Last week, Putin told Washington to send him hard evidence that his citizens meddled in US elections, mocking accusations to date as “yelling and hollering in the United States Congress” and that he has to “see first what they’ve done. Give us materials, give us information,” Putin said in an another excerpt from the interview with NBC TV, according to an English voice-over of his words.
Just a tip, and generally speaking, guilty people when lying, always ask for evidence of the bad behavior they are being accused of. Innocent people tend to flat out deny the accusation. A guilty person has a guilty mind, and likes to ask what evidence you might have because of it.
