Hillary Clinton sure sees conspiracies everywhere. Remember “the vast right-wing conspiracy” that was allegedly trying to destroy her husband (when it was Bill’s recklesss adulterous escapades that were really the source of the sabotage)?
Now an increasingly desperate Hillary, vying for Bill’s old job, has trotted out the same theme. But instead of focusing on, say, Rush Limbaugh and other vocal Clinton administration critics, she’s pointing the finger at the leader of Russia.
According to Breitbart:
Clinton was asked about reports suggesting that Russian hackers were trying to hack into voter information in the United States during an interview with ABC’s David Muir. (…)
“What I found very troubling but also revealing is when Putin was specifically asked that, he didn’t deny it,” Clinton said. “He said, well it’s good the information got out. Which, having dealt with Putin, I took as an admission.”
However, Putin did deny that Russia’s government was responsible for the DNC hack.
“I don’t know anything about it, and on a state level Russia has never done this,” Putin said in an interview with Bloomberg News.
This is hilarious for a few reasons. First, Putin isn’t going to admit to hacking anything, obviously. So Hillary’s comments about his denials are not only false, but naive.
But isn’t it rich that Hillary Clinton of all people is suddenly pretending to care about American data being hacked when she’s the one whose lazy, amateurish server set ups put sensitive information at risk for years?
