Too Good To Check? Putin Was Targeting Hillary As Payback

Lots of anonymous sources, but, could this be something? And, if it is, why so little Credentialed Media coverage?

(Daily Caller)  U.S. intelligence overheard a Russian operative brag about targeting Hillary Clinton in the upcoming 2016 presidential election as payback for an “influence campaign” the former secretary of state ran against Vladimir Putin five years earlier.

Senior intelligence officials told Time that a Russian military intelligence officer with GRU said his group “was going to cause chaos in the upcoming U.S. election” to “pay Clinton back for what President Vladimir Putin believed was an influence operation she had run against him” during Russian elections.

There’s no doubt that Russia attempted to interfere with our elections. Heck, we’ve done it to them. The U.S. has done it to other countries. Whatever your opinion of Mr. Obama, he is a former two term POTUS, and he just interfered with the French elections, and attempted interference during Brexit. Such is world statecraft.

But, this puts a different spin on this whole thing. If any other Republican had been running, Putin would still probably have gone after Hillary. And, had she won, it is easy to ponder that Putin would have caused more havoc, as Russia probably has lots of her hacked emails.

    Now we hear that former Vice President Biden didn’t think that the lovely Mrs Clinton was a particularly good candidate; too bad (for them, not for real Americans) that he didn’t say so before she was nominated!

    The Democrats’ judgement was that Mrs Clinton was unbeatable; it turned out that she couldn’t defeat even the most flawed Republican candidate ever.

    Donald Trump isn’t perfect; far from it. But he did perform the greatest service he could for this country, and that’s keep Mrs Clinton a private citizen.

      Dana,
      I know many of you don’t like Trump, but if you look at the field that the Reps put up, he was the only one that could defeat the witch. He treated her like a typical native of Brooklyn would treat a woman, course, mean and in no way did he respect the fact that she was of the feminine gender (though that is up for debate). Can you imagine Jeb, or Lindsey, or Rand or even Cruz being able to get through the storm of manufactured abuse that Hillary and group came up with?

        He is from Queens. Us Brooklynites know how to treat a lady. But since we are talking about Hillary that point is moot.

    What about real crimes and real collusion with Russia and others?? How about Hillary giving up Ur and missing several billion from State? How about Hillary lying and exposing sensitive material? How about Obama collusion with Russia as evidence by his hot mike moment? How about the numerous crimes and other events under the Obama administration? Yes, we need a special prosecutor, but not for Trump, we need it to get to the bottom of about 24 years of incompetent and corrupt government. We need to put these folks and many of the bureaucrats that helped them in jail and throw away the key.
