(Tea Party 247) – Say what you will about Russian President Vladimir Putin, he has a good sense of humor and we can at least appreciate his recent comments about interfering in the 2020 presidential election. The incense he must have caused leftist politicians and liberal media sycophants is entertaining to imagine.
While speaking on a panel of industry and political leaders at the Russian Energy Week conference, Putin mocked reports already alleging Moscow plans to interfere in the 2020 US presidential election. When pressed by NBC News correspondent Keir Simmons over whether former Special Counsel Robert Mueller was accurate in predicting Russia would “attempt to interfere” in the 2020 election, Putin leaned forward in a gesture to act like he was whispering a ‘secret’:
“I’m going to tell you a secret,” Putin said, leaning forward.
“Yes, we will definitely intervene, don’t tell anybody” he continued to an applauding crowd.
“You know, we have enough of our own problems,” Putin continued. “We are engaged in resolving internal problems and are primarily focused on this.”
His characteristic public sarcasm was a hit with the crowd, at an event which included OPEC Secretary General Mohammed Barkindo and others. He followed on a more serious note by calling it “ridiculous” that Russia would interfere in the 2020 election.
He also talked down his relationship and interactions with President Trump, describing that the two leaders have never been close.

Considering the left implicated Putin and his entire government in the alleged interference of the 2016 election, which has been debunked by the Mueller report, it seems fair that Putin should want to take a shot at the looney liberals. The left has been dragging Putin’s name through the mud since Trump won the presidency and despite whatever wrongs can be properly charged to him in other areas, he isn’t guilty of colluding with Trump to steal the election.
Putin also went on to defend President Trump from the ridiculous witch hunt currently taking place in Washington over Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky.
“From what we know, I don’t see anything compromising at all,” Putin said about the transcripts, “I didn’t see that during this phone call Trump demanded compromising material from Zelensky at any cost and threatened him that he wouldn’t help Ukraine.”
The left has been vehemently trying to convince the American public, and themselves, that Trump broke some kind of law by discussing the possible corruption that took place during a former administration. It simply isn’t true and what’s more is the fact that the transcripts prove Trump did nothing wrong, no matter how much the left tries to twist it. In the greatest display of hypocrisy yet, the left is accusing Trump of doing exactly what Joe Biden did in the past.
As Putin pointed out, “They began with this impeachment proceeding. And they always recall Nixon. Nixon’s team was wiretapping, listening to their rivals,” he goes on to say, “But this is a completely different situation – Trump was wiretapped! Some anonymous special service staffer leaked this information. And based on what we know from the call there was nothing wrong there. Trump asked his colleague to investigate possible corruption schemes of a previous administration.”
It’s obviously not blind hypocrisy at this point. The left has to see what they are doing for what it is; the rest of the world does. They will not stop until they see Trump destroyed and everything they do is a scheme to that end. They are trying to silence conservatives and steal our right to a fair election. If they succeed in impeaching President Trump, democracy as we know it will be a thing of the past.
