Things just got a bit uncomfortable for Donald Trump. As Russia’s displeasure with Donald Trump’s job performance increases, Vladimir Putin appears to be firing a warning shot at the Trump administration with a wink-and-nod admission that Russia hackers ‘may’ have hacked Hillary Clinton and the DNC to help The Donald.
Putin describes his country’s hackers as”artists” who decide their targets based on how they feel each day:
If they are patriotically minded, they start making their contributions – which are right, from their point of view – to fight against those who say bad things about Russia.”
However, Putin, who was identified by 17 intelligence agencies as the mastermind behind the attack on Trump’s political opponents, maintains that he is “not doing this on the state level.”
In fact, Putin claims that he and his country are being framed. The Russian dictator launched a preemptive strike against any evidence that may be released connecting the corrupt Trump administration to Russia:
“I can imagine that someone is doing this purposefully – building the chain of attacks so that the territory of Russian Federation appears to be the source of the attack. Modern technologies allow to do that kind of thing, it’s rather easy to do.”
This news comes on the heels of news that former FBI Director James Comey is expected to testify that Donald Trump did indeed attempt to pressure him to back off of Michael Flynn and reports that Jared Kushner attempted to establish secret backchannel communications with Russia using Russian equipment.
Trump is worried. Putin is working hard to protect Russia when The Donald’s administration ultimately goes up in flames.
