Putin: Russians gave Hillary $400 million

At his press conference with President Trump, Putin mentioned Bill Browder, an American-British businessman who deals with with Russian oligarchs. Theirs is a complicated relationship. Putin may have killed Browder's lawyer, and Browder lobbied for U.S. economic sanctions against Russia -- which President Trump made tougher.

The Democrats with bylines asked President Trump and Putin about Russian meddling.

"We should be guided by facts. Could you name a single fact that definitively prove that collusion? This is utter nonsense," Putin said.

"Just like the president recently mentioned. Yes, the public at large the United States had a sudden perceived opinion of the candidates during the campaign. But there's nothing particularly extraordinary about it. That's a usual thing."

Oh no, we grade candidates on something other whether or not they would be the first woman to hold the office. Such a shocker for the Democrats.

Then Putin got down to business.

"We can bring up Mr. Browder in this particular case. Business associates of Mr. Browder have earned over one and a half billion dollars in Russia. They never paid any taxes, neither in Russian army in the United States and yet the money escaped the country, they were transferred to the United States," Putin said.

"They sent huge amount of money -- $400 million -- as a contribution to the campaign of Hillary Clinton. Well, that's their personal case, it might have been legal, the contribution itself, but the way the money was earned was illegal."

Foreign campaign contributions are illegal. Campaign donations are limited to $101,700 per account using various accounting tricks.

A reporter asked, "Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?"

Putin replied, "Yes, I did. Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S. Russia relationship back to normal."

He wanted to, as Hillary once said, hit the reset button.

By the way, Democrats. The 1950s called. They want their witch hunt back.

  1. The way that Trump’s meeting with Putin differed from Hillary “Reset Button” Clinton’s is, this time Putin didn’t look as if he wanted to roll his eyes in contempt.

  2. If Hillary had won:
    a) Putin wouldn't have been asked who he wanted to win; but
    b) if he had been asked then, he would have said Hillary.

    Putin likes winners, too -- and wants winners to win. Preferably with his help.

  3. Old enough to remember when the Cold War ended and the wall came down. Watched successive administrations blow the peace. I'll listen to No One about Trump's "mistakes "; I trust him more than all the Bushes and Clinton's in DC.

  4. The 1950s was not a witch hunt.

    There were communists here. They were in positions of power. They thrived. They made things happen until we were all forced to live through eight years of the Indonesian.

    The "tolerance of intolerance" paradox that the leftards live by is an excellent starting place for examining the compatibility of the First Amendment and collectivism.

  5. All the lefties are wringing their hands with confusion at Trump's diplomacy: he actually wants to change things instead of just talking about changing things, and he hasn't had to send Putin a pallet of cash or a blank check.

  6. Mueller may have a handful of indictments but he has yet to get convictions. I'll wait (and get the popcorn). The timing of Mueller was not an accident or "just happened". I'm with Rick. I'll trust Trump - the lefties got nothing.

  7. It's no wonder the Lefties were dead set against President Trump meeting President Putin. If they start working together a lot of Democrat shenanigans will be exposed. My intuition tells me that the kabuki is about to end. - Elric

    1. It is Elric. Slow drip through the fall so the November election is a democrat disaster. Not too fast to give liberals in the media time to lie their way out of it. PDJT and Jeff Sessions have the goods.

    2. I'm convinced that President Trump knows - and can prove - EVERYTHING. That is why the Democrats are going absolutely insane. Like a cat playing with a mouse, they know their end is near. Hillary said, "If Trump is elected we'll all hang." - Elric

    3. Yep, I'm with you guys. POTUS knows, and is just waiting till the right time to drop the hammer.

      Is the midterm election happening in the next few days or weeks? Nope. So if he blew the whistle now, the Dems and their fellow-travellers have far too much time to spin, deny and obfuscate. They'd escape the trap if he triggered it now!

      Hammertime will come when it's too late for Dems and their lackeys to do anything about it, and I'm enjoying their shrieks of despair!

  8. Heh! Quoting Pootie now, eh? Might as well go to the source. We never did see Trump answer any questions while Putin drank a glass of water. Whataboutism right from the source.

  9. So Clinton got more than the $145 million for the uranium one deal, I guess the balance due was $400 million paid in full a few yrs later

  10. $400M to Hillary's campaign? That's a yuuuug pile of money. I'm skeptical. There's no way to hide that much dough.

    1. There are ways to maneuver in the banking system, the Mafia, Organized Crime, and drug syndicates have been doing it for decades. The Clinton Crime Family I's sure has the experience and talent.

    2. My guess is that he misspoke about the money going directly to the campaign. It's probably partly in the foundation, partly scattered in numbered accounts in various other countries. The Clintons are just waiting for the right moments to access it. Watch Chelea's lifestyle going forward. She will want for nothing.

    3. gatewaypundit has corrected amount 400,000 not 400,000,000. misspoke or mistranslation.
