Putin’s Revenge: Regime Change in Washington DCby Gordon Adams
As the stories about Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election begin to swell, it seems possible that Vladimir Putin may have succeeded in the U.S. where the U.S. failed in Moscow: regime change in the adversary country.
What the Russians appear to have done is outrageous – to try to manipulate the elections of their primary adversary through intrusion and fake news. It is worth asking, however, why Putin would choose to do so. There may be no way to prove that electing Donald Trump was his goal, but Putin must have envisioned that a Trump presidency, based on the candidate’s words, could be more favorably inclined toward Russia than a Clinton presidency. http://lobelog.com/putins-revenge-regime-change-in-washington-dc/#more-37148
