Putin Now Argues Russia Could’ve Been Framed For Election Meddling By The CIA

In a news magazine show premiering tonight, Megyn Kelly reports that Russian president Vladimir Putin “has denied Russian involvement in the hacking and interference with our U.S. presidential eletion for some time. That changed earlier this week, and the story appears to be evolving yet again.” An anonymous reader shared two articles from NBC:
“Hackers can be anywhere. They can be in Russia, in Asia…even in America, Latin America,” he said. “They can even be hackers, by the way, in the United States who very skillfully and professionally shifted the blame, as we say, onto Russia. Can you imagine something like that? In the midst of a political battle…?” The journalist asked the Russian president about what American intelligence agencies say is evidence that he became personally involved in a covert campaign to harm Hillary Clinton and benefit Donald Trump. “IP addresses can be invented — a child can do that! Your underage daughter could do that. That is not proof,” Putin replied…

Kelly told viewers that Putin — the former director of Russia’s domestic spy agency — also suggested that the CIA could have been behind the hacking and noted that many people were convinced Russia was responsible for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy… Earlier, at a Friday forum moderated by Kelly, Putin likened the U.S. blaming his country for hacking the presidential election to “blaming the Jews”…
“Echoing remarks President Donald Trump made on the campaign trail, Putin also questioned the need for NATO.”
