Clinton’s interference in Russian election – Putin’s payback


 

In 1996 the US government interfered in Russia’s election so blatantly that it was boasted on the cover of Time magazine. It never was about Trump, but rather the Clinton’s nefarious activities.

What many Russians, but few Americans, know is that 20 years before Russia tried to swing an American presidential election, America tried to swing a presidential election in Russia. The year was 1996. Boris Yeltsin was seeking a second term, and Bill Clinton desperately wanted to help. “I want this guy to win so bad,” he told Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott, “it hurts.”

So the Clinton administration sprang into action. It lobbied the International Monetary Fund to give Russia a $10 billion loan, some of which Yeltsin distributed to woo voters. Upon arriving in a given city, he often announced, “My pockets are full.”

Three American political consultants—including Richard Dresner, a veteran of Clinton’s campaigns in Arkansas—went to work on Yeltsin’s reelection bid. Every week, Dresner sent the White House the Yeltsin campaign’s internal polling. And before traveling to meet Yeltsin in April, Clinton asked Dresner what he should say in Moscow to boost his buddy’s campaign.

It worked. In a stunning turnaround, Yeltsin—who had begun the campaign in last place—defeated his communist rival in the election’s final round by 13 percentage points.

But the Clinton’s weren’t done with Putin. Not by a long shot, not Hillary:

In December 2011, Vladimir Putin came closer than he’s ever been to losing his hold on power. His decision that year to run for a third term as Russia’s President had inspired a massive protest movement against him. Demonstrations calling for him to resign were attracting hundreds of thousands of people across the country. Some of his closest allies had defected to the opposition, causing a split in the Kremlin elites, and Russian state media had begun to warn of a revolution in the making.

At a crisis meeting with his advisers on Dec. 8 of that year, the Russian leader chose to lay the blame on one meddling foreign diplomat: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“She set the tone for certain actors inside the country; she gave the signal,” Putin said of Clinton at the time, accusing her of ordering the opposition movement into action like some kind of revolutionary sleeper cell. “They heard this signal and, with the support of the U.S. State Department, started actively doing their work.”

Five years later, the U.S. presidential elections may have given Putin his chance for getting even. According to Clinton’s campaign staff and a number of cyber-security experts, Russian hackers in the service of the Kremlin were behind last week’s leak of emails from the Democratic National Committee.

    Just a thought…we the United States of America are not innocent of meddling in elections and governments…just saying…I’m sick of hearing about Russia, Russia, Russia (Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!)…who cares. wink…Nothing will happen with the Clintons, nothing. Just saying.

    I wish Jared and Ivana would just go away–they do more damage than good. Both bleeding heart liberals.

    Bunkerville, will Durham EVER FINALLY get Hillary in trouble? I have very little hope.
    Great stuff above…too bad more people don’t know it.

    What did you think of things that were spoken of (the movie instead of the book!) yesterday like “Trump said he had no dealings with Russia while he was trying to get Trump Tower built there” (I think that was POLITICAL dealings he was talking about and personally don’t have a problem believing that)… or “Trump told them to hack Hillary and within 5 hours, Russia was hacking HIllary’s emails”..Or that Trump didn’t go to the FBI when Russia approached him…….there were a LOT of things which might not be ILLEGAL< as the Republicans are stressing now, but there seems to be a lot of untruths told by Trump and Friends, don't you think? This is the stuff the Left is crazed about, and, sadly, they're all over the news with it….

      Trump goes off unfiltered. That is Trump… Do I think Trump would sell out the USA over a stupid building in Russia? No. Much of what he said was out on the stump and tongue in cheek… thats the way he rolls. He is not a politico and never will be. I take him warts and all… He is a business man….and losing a fortune taking this job.. I just wish he would have left his kids home….that is my complaint.

        Good point about the kids, though I think that, as much as Ivanka’s stepped too far many times, she has been part of some good things. Don Jr, I have no patience for. Frankly, Eric’s wife Lara is the most articulate and smartest of them all, it seems.
        “unfiltered”, yes, of course. And I agree that Trump would NEVER sell the USA out, EVER, but I don’t call some of the things that came to light just how anybody should “roll”… I guess I selfishly want 2 Trumps; Who he is and who he could be to get much farther in his agenda, though I believe the Left will never stop slamming him no matter what, the public reveals itself not to buy too much of the ego and some of those stories they heard yesterday, legal or not.

    If Trump had actually meddled in Russia’s election, do you think anyone in the press would stand by for a similar reversal (putting a picture of Bill under the headline)?

    Funny that The Atlantic puts Trump and Putin under the headline “The US must face up to election meddling” when it was Clinton that did the meddling and Yeltsin that benefitted.
