Russia and our nation
Did Russia try to influence our 2016 election because its president, Vladimir Putin, did not want Hillary Clinton to win the American presidency?
I believe the obvious answer is yes, but the question remains: Why?
Putin is still allegedly mad at Clinton for reportedly trying to get him beaten four years ago. At that time, Clinton, as secretary of state, could have used her influence with our intelligence agencies to spy on Putin just as Russia spies on us.
Most people seemingly believe Putin was not freely elected, but facts seemingly indicate he got 82 percent of the vote. He was the candidate of the Russia United party. It might surprise some that one of the largest political parties in Russia is the Liberal Democrats.
American pollsters say Putin today still is supported by over 80 percent of the Russian people. The bottom line is that Putin isn’t going away, and President Donald Trump needs a top expert on Russia to deal with him.
Neither the United States or Russia wants war because both nations each have over 5,000 nuclear bombs which could wipe out our entire planet.
Instead of constantly taunting each other, it would be to the advantage of both nations to work together to attack terror, which seemingly threatens all countries. VERNON McDANIEL
