Vladimir Putin finally admits that "patriotically minded" Russian hackers MIGHT have interfered in US election.

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

Shifting away from his previous blanket denials of Russian involvement in cyberattacks last year to help the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia denied any state role on Thursday but said that “patriotically minded” private Russian hackers could have been involved. 

Mr. Putin’s comments, made during a meeting with Russian and foreign news agencies in St. Petersburg, were a departure from the Kremlin’s previous position: that Russia had played no role whatsoever in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and that, after Mr. Trump’s victory, the country had become the victim of anti-Russia hysteria among crestfallen Democrats.

Raising the possibility of attacks by what he portrayed as free-spirited Russian patriots, Mr. Putin said that hackers “are like artists” who choose their targets depending how they feel “when they wake up in the morning.” 

“If they are patriotically minded, they start making their contributions — which are right, from their point of view — to the fight against those who say bad things about Russia,” he added.

Yes they choose their targets "when they wake up in the morning" and receive their orders from the Kremlin.

I think this half-assed admission is because Putin realizes that there is overwhelming proof that the Russians worked to get Trump elected, and is glibly acknowledging what is being confirmed with more evidence virtually every day.

If our government were not being run by Russian puppets we would be demanding that Putin hand over these hackers to stand trial in America, and until that happened establish some very serious sanctions to force their compliance.

You know, instead of allowing them back into the American based spy compounds we kicked them out of when we first learned about their interference.

    "President Donald Trump is personally under FBI investigation for an undisclosed meeting that he, Jared Kushner and Jeff Sessions had with the Russian ambassador at a campaign event in 2016."

  5. Putin is messing with Trump and watching to see if republicans will react. They won't. Graham and McCain will get in front of cameras because---well, cameras.

    In the end Putin will just admit Trump was in league with them during the election and watch the fallout. It will be ugly. The republicans will say Putin is lying. Democrats will say they are telling the truth and Trump supporters won't care.

    This will destroy the country. Win, win Russia.

      McCain continues to be full of bullshit. Remember, he picked Sarah Palin to run w/him and thank God lost to our wonderful past President Obama!
      McCain and Palin were a ridiculous fiasco? He talks out of both sides of his mouth and always has!

    We've got some pretty ugly Americans in our White House and the majority of them need to be run out of D.C. ASAP. Not a damn one of them represents me or the majority of America!

    Fuck every one of them! I most especially include Trump, the VP and Sessions in this statement!

      It appears to me that they have set out to and are in collusion to destroy this country. Every day...hell,every hour something new happens that makes me believe that more and more. Why Congress is sitting on their asses and letting this happen is completely beyond my comprehension. Yes, I realize they are getting ready to have hearings, etc. but that moves too slowly while tremendous damage is being done. Treason is in the White House. Where the hell are the patriots?

  9. "Might have"? Well, that's pretty much an admission and a certainty. They did it. The only reason he's admitting it is he knows Trump won't do squat about it and the Republicans won't do anything to remove Trump from power.

    So Putin has won. With impunity.

    Keep your eyes on Germany next.

    Everyone knows that trump and the mob are behind this attempted treason and espionage. Only stupid criminals think otherwise. The charges are piling up and trump took everyone down the drain with him. He is a disgusting lying fool.

    Why doesn't Congress offer $10,000,000 tax free for impeachable information against Donald Trump including criminal, treason and espionage evidence that will place Trump and his Anti-American cohorts in Federal Prison for treason and espionage.

    If such person who comes forward happens to have participated in criminal acts associated with President Trump, they may get a reduced sentence.

    Payment will be given after conviction and imprisonment.

    Mr. Putin must be “very naive” to believe that patriotic russians didn’t have KGB authorization to hack the Americans.

    Sorry Vlad, the American public is smarter than little donnie and we don’t believe either one of you.
