Putin says U.S. hacking scandal not in Russia's interests


The scandal that erupted in the United States over allegations Russia hacked Democratic Party emails has not been in Moscow’s interests and both sides in the U.S. election campaign are just using Russia to score points, Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

The U.S. government on Friday formally accused Russia for the first time of a campaign of cyber attacks against Democratic Party organizations ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election.

And the White House said on Tuesday it would consider a variety of responses to the alleged hacks.

“They started this hysteria, saying that this (hacking) is in Russia’s interests. But this has nothing to do with Russia’s interests,” President Putin told a business forum in Moscow.



Maybe the Russians did the hacking, and maybe they didn’t. But for sure, if Podesta was hacked by one actor, he and Hillary Clinton’s emails were too, possibly by several actors; some friendly, some not.

The American people don’t know what’s in Hillary’s destroyed emails, but somebody does, and probably several somebodies.


I believe 1,200 more are to be released today


If Donald Trump won, The United States would face a lot of issues. I think Russia and Putin with his Sovietesque dictatorship would definitely love to see that.
