Recall when Bill Clinton meddled in Russian Election? Putin extracts revenge?


In 1996 US govt interfered in Russia’s election so blatantly it was boasted on the cover of Time magazine. . 

We were so proud of it, it made the cover of Time Magazine and the major Media outlets. Payback can be hell, Hillary. Your hubby tried to make sure Putin’s candidate didn’t get elected.

Earlier I posted Bill Clinton meddled in Russian Election.

Remember TIME magazine’s cover and report of July 15th, 1996?

President Bill Clinton meddled in Russian affairs in the 1990s and helped Boris Yeltsin get elected to a second term, political analyst Dick Morris told Newsmax TV.

“I think that Putin resented that, hated it, thought that it was an inappropriate intervention by Bill Clinton and I think he’s determined to take his revenge out on Hillary Clinton.” Quote from Dick Morris.

UPDATE:

WATCH: The Election Clash That Fueled Putin’s Ire Against Clinton

For months, reports of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election have dominated the headlines. 

But the story traces back long before the race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton last year….

 

Truth be told, the CIA on our behalf meddles in elections all over the world. Period. Full stop. Same as Russia.

Israel for one…a pal. Try this

The U.S. is no stranger to interfering in the elections of other countries

The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University.

That number doesn’t include military coups and regime change efforts following the election of candidates the U.S. didn’t like, notably those in Iran, Guatemala and Chile. Nor does it include general assistance with the electoral process, such as election monitoring.

    Wow! I had no idea about this, I wonder if there was a little payback on Putin’s mind.

      Tomorrow I will try and cover why Putin is mad at Hillary and her efforts and funding of Russian uprisings as his re-election was in place… I think that Trump may have heard a whole lot in that one on one meeting with Putin… Trump should trust no one. That is why I think Brennan et al are going rabid..they may get exposed.

    Fascinating that our media’s ignoring the reasons Putin hates the Clintons…thereby probably providing a large part of the reason for their interference in making sure Hillary LOST.
    As an American, I don’t like any time a foreign power even tries, let alone succeeds, to get anybody elected in our country….
    I posted a Hillary-Russia link recently…didn’t get noticed, but it’s important……
    Just wishing yesterday went better……it didn’t.

        Not his best day? To say the least…let’s just hope it’s his worst day ever! The presser in an hour should be fascinating. Let’s hope he doesn’t dig himself down deeper!

    I did get an eye/ear full this past semester during the Latin America History class. I had forgotten all about our interferences/military coups. I’m glad that professor didn’t sugar coat it, these bleeding heart young folks need to hear the truth…America is not innocent of anything.

    On another note, it’s sort of funny to see the melt downs happening and now openly calling for the shadow government to get involved. I don’t know if I’m amused or ticked off, prob. a little of both.

      I was an Anthropology major back in the ’70s… it was well known that the CIA was using the profession to go into countries and cause disruption and manipulation. We were getting kicked out of more and more countries.
