Putin Says Trump Prosecution Shows ‘Rottenness of the American Political System’ – American Faith

“They simply exposed their internal problems.”

  • Speaking at Russia’s Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russian President Vladimir Putin described his perspective on the ongoing prosecution against Donald Trump.
  • “As for the political persecution of Trump, for us, what is happening in today’s conditions, in my opinion, is good,” Putin said.
  • When asked “Why?” the Russian president stated, “Because it shows the rottenness of the American political system, which cannot pretend to teach others about democracy.”
  • He noted that everything that is occurring within the Trump prosecution is the “persecution of a political rival for political reasons. That’s what it is. And this is being done in front of the US public and the whole world.”
  • According to Putin, the United States “simply exposed their internal problems.”
  • While the U.S. deep state has unsuccessfully attempted to link Trump to Russia, other information suggests Ukraine is connected to the United States’ political elite.
  • Investigative journalist Laura Loomer alleged that Ukrainian spies penetrated the U.S. Capitol during the January 6, 2021 event.
  • Loomer pointed to an interview between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and January 6 demonstrator Jacob Chansley, where questioning revolved around Chansley’s association with a Ukrainian operative, suggesting foreign interference.
  • Further emphasizing the severity of the claims, she added, “Chansley didn’t know the guy, and FBI confirmed that the Ukrainian Sergai Dybynyn was a Ukrainian spy who is affiliated with the Nazi Azov Battalion.”
  • Loomer also alleged that Kent “Boneface” McLellan, previously arrested for domestic terrorism, is connected to a Nazi militia and the FBI.
  • A redacted police report eliminated details pertaining to McLellan’s ties to a Nazi militia preparing for conflict in Ukraine.
  • As American Faith reported, “Her narratives connect various threads, from the CIA funding ‘a color revolution’ in the U.S. using Ukrainian and American Nazis to the potential recruitment of these extremist factions by both the CIA and the FBI for overseas operations, notably within the Azov Battalion.”
  • According to Loomer, this is part of a “CIA funded domestic terror operation intended to interfere in the U.S. Election and to make sure Donald Trump is never allowed to be President ever again.”
  • In May 2023, Special Counsel John Durham’s report on the Trump-Russia investigation concluded that the FBI should not have launched a full investigation into connections between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
  • Deputy Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Peter Strzok, under the direction of Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, is quoted as having opened the investigation “immediately.”
  • The report highlights that Strzok, who played a significant role in the investigation, had “pronounced hostile feelings toward Trump.”
  • This revelation supports concerns over potential bias in the FBI’s actions.
  • One notable quote from the report reads, “The FBI had no information in its holdings indicating that at any time during the campaign anyone in the Trump campaign had been in contact with any Russian intelligence officials.”
