If they wanted to stick it to the U.S., they would have helped Hillary win.

Putin DID NOT like Hillary, he did not want her to win.
Did you not hear Putin say in his OWN WORDS, Yes he did want The Donald to win. Yes Yes I did.

You may feel sticking it to the US would have been a win for him in your eyes, not necessarily the entire Country, but Putin absolutely did NOT want Hillary to win. He DID NOT LIKE HER.

Most likely because he could not control her like he can The Donald. She didn't sleep with his beautiful prostitutes, or want to build Hotels in Russia, and who knows what else. He has control over The Donald.

Trump bellowed to a Pennsylvania audience that “I had a great meeting with Putin. . . . Now we’re being hindered by the Russian hoax. It’s a hoax, okay?”

"Right After" his Top Notch Officials went on TV and explained how the Russians had been and still were meddling in our elections.

He is such a two face lyer, even against his own WH staff, making them look like FOOLS.

It's really very simple. Russia helped trump get elected, trump is beholding to the Russians (Putin). Trump called on the Russians (Putin) to "find the emails". They did. They hacked into our data bases, they placed over 100 operatives here posting in our social media and those 100 operatives recruited others to do the same. Trump accepted their help with open arms. He has done nothing to improve our cyber-security.

 

Yep, it's that simple.

President Trump at the White House on June 29. (Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post)
August 12
 

Imagine that U.S. military leaders spent most of 1941 warning President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his Democratic Party of a coming Pearl Harbor attack. Then imagine history’s harsh judgment against FDR’s party had it ignored those concerns, voted against efforts to fortify the Pacific fleet and plotted the firing of generals who were working to expose the looming Japanese threat. Historians would have rightly savaged these politicians as traitors to their country.

 

Seventy-seven years later, President Trump and his Republican Party are showing a disturbing ambivalence toward Russia’s attacks on U.S. democracy. What exactly are we to make of their disturbing behavior? Even after Trump’s intelligence chiefs handed Republicans incontrovertible evidence of Russian malevolence, Trump dismissed the warnings as a hoax, the GOP House Intelligence Committee chairman secretly plotted against those leading the Russia investigation and Senate Republicans voted in lock step against a Democratic bill providing a stronger defense against future Russian attacks.

 

“The X-Files” this is not. The truth about Russia is out there, and it is staring every Republican right in the face.

 

Trump’s director of national intelligence said warning lights were “blinking red” and compared the threat level from Russia to what we faced leading up to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

 

The president’s secretary of homeland security declared that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s plot against America placed “democracy itself . . . in the cross hairs.”

 

The president’s FBI director, in that same news conference, warned Americans that “the threat is not going away.”

 
 
 
 

But despite that clear and present danger, Trump still stubbornly sides with an ex-KGB spy over his own law enforcement and intelligence leaders. Just hours after his national security team delivered their harsh warnings in a White House press briefing, Trump bellowed to a Pennsylvania audience that “I had a great meeting with Putin. . . . Now we’re being hindered by the Russian hoax. It’s a hoax, okay?”

 

No, Mr. President. This is not a hoax, and things are not okay
