Russian president Vladimir Putin should be held to account for destabilising the United States’ electoral process, Hillary Clinton has said, as she called for an independent investigation into the cloud of rumours about Russian interference.
Umm, don’t we need to know first that there was such interference?
“He’s always trying to figure out how to advantage himself, his oligarchic companions, and his country – in that order,” she said.
A significant dose of projection there methinks. Put an S at the front of that and we’ve just described Hillary, haven’t we?
Mrs Clinton said she had a simple answer to why Mr Putin would want to interfere in the election.
“I don’t think it’s too complicated,” she said. “He had this desire to destabilise us and others. And he’s not exactly fond of strong women. So you add that together.”
And she’s still not really grasped what happened. The lifelong politician was politically outsmarted by Donald Trump. Yup, The Donald.
