Russian President Vladimir Putin dug into the accusations that there was Russian interference in the US election on CNBC. He said what every conservative already knows in this country. That these are just “lies” being utilized for “domestic American politics.”
“We said on numerous occasions and I reiterate that we are confident…And know for sure that opinion polls in the Unites States show that very many people are…friendly towards the Russian Federation and I’d like to tell these people that we perceive and regard the United States as a great power with which we want to establish good partnership relations,” Putin said and added “All those things are fictional, illusory and provocations, lies. All these are used for domestic American political agendas. The anti-Russian card is played by different political forces inside the United States to trade on that and consolidate their positions inside.”
Putin denied that Russia meddled in the US elections. Putin even quoted George Bush and asked if the “Russian government had ever tried to influence the outcome of the US presidential election, and there will be no evidence found?” to which he snapped back.
