The Democrat conspiracy theory about Russia and Trump is running out of steam.
Intelligence officials and Senators have all admitted they’ve seen no evidence of collusion.
But when Russian President Vladimir Putin had the question put to him, he made an admission that stopped everyone in their tracks.
Putin was being interviewed by Megyn Kelly when she asked him about Russian interference in the election.
He claimed Russia had no reason to interfere in the election.
“U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Putin ordered the disruption of the election. During the interview, Putin tried to dismiss the evidence by claiming that the United States has a history of meddling in foreign elections…
…”Every action has an equal and opposite reaction,” he said. “But, I repeat, we don’t even have to do that. Presidents come and go, and even the parties in power change, but the main political direction does not change.”
Putin claimed that Russia has a preference in an election but only reacts to the “political direction” that the United States seems to be heading in.
“It wouldn’t make sense for us to interfere,” he said.”
Putin also addressed the baseless claim that the Russian government has compromising information on Trump.
This theory gained steam in early January when CNN reported on an unsubstantiated memo prepared by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele.
It contained multiple false and debunked claims, but the media focused on the accusation that the Russians had compromising intelligence on Trump.
Putin denied this claim.
NBC also reports:
“The conversation later turned to a pre-campaign dossier that was purportedly collected on Trump.
Asked whether “you have something damaging on our president?” Putin — who once worked as a KGB recruiter — replied: “Well, this is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from?”
“Why, did we have some special relationship with him?” Putin asked. “We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him. We have a lot of Americans who visit us.”
The well-known spin master then attempted to turn the tables.
“Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia,” Putin said. “Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Have you all lost your senses over there?”
Pundits will point out that Putin has a motivation to lie.
But so far, the scandal about Trump colluding with Putin and Russia has turned out to be nothing more than a fake news conspiracy theory.
