Putin pet Trump more critical of FBI than of Russia

BBC - After face-to-face talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump contradicted US intelligence agencies and said there had been no reason for Russia to meddle in the vote.

Mr Putin reiterated that Russia had never interfered in US affairs.

The two men held nearly two hours of closed-door talks in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday.

At a news conference after the summit, President Trump was asked if he believed his own intelligence agencies or the Russian president when it came to the allegations of meddling in the elections.

"President Putin says it's not Russia. I don't see any reason why it should be," he replied.

US intelligence agencies concluded in 2016 that Russia was behind an effort to tip the scale of the US election against Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media.

MSN - Putin later confirmed that he did want Trump to win in 2016, “because he talked about normalizing relations” between Russia and the United States.

Brennan should know. HE is the traitor to the US, along with:

Ohr (Bruce and Nancy)
Simpson/Fusion One
and of course Hillary Clinton

Others are colluding illegally with these traitors in trying to overturn the results of a US election through the use of illegal surveillance and propaganda techniques. Spys/plants such as Carter Page were inserted into Trump's campaign to try to entrap the campaign and obtain FISA warrants, who they knew damn well was a previous FBI informant who had worked to expose previous Russian activities.

They will be exposed.

Mueller and Rosenstein are producing indictments and then alleging hacking of a DNC server they NEVER investigated - they merely took the word of a DNC subcontractor (Crowdstrike)

What a joke these people are.

Sam, don't be a tool and a fool for the traitors - these are the same people who destroyed Sanders chances and the hopes of the millions who worked so hard for him.

I count myself as a Progressive but after reading the first 10 "Russia-gate" articles, I stopped reading them. There was simply no proof and the whole thing looked like a psyop designed to delegitimize the actual results of the election.

But the release of the Muller indictment just prior to the summit is far more troubling. If it was meant to derail the summit, then it is Muller who is treasonous and not Trump. The impression I am left with is that this country has gone completely off the rails.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I admire Trump's courage in meeting Putin and standing up to the despicable US intelligence services and the vile Democrats.

This meddling stuff is not relevant to anything. The Democrats got every media endorsement in the country. The Democratic runner-up, despite being sold out by the party - endorsed Clinton. She had two prior Presidents campaigning for her and more Wall Street money than any candidate in history.

She didn’t lose because of Vladimir Putin. She lost because the Democrats left all the rust belt workers for dead. Those workers got the message. They voted for someone who at least paid attention to them.
