I have been saying from the beginning that Russia has tried to intrude on and influence our elections for decades. It’s nothing new. It’s also true that we have meddled in foreign elections. Countries do this… it doesn’t make it right, but at least in our case it was to promote freedom on the world stage. Russia’s intentions were entirely different.
Former Trump campaign communications adviser Michael Caputo went head to head with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota today. Caputo has worked in conjunction with multiple presidencies… President Reagan, President George H. W. Bush, President Bill Clinton and President Trump. He has also lived in Russia. Frankly, I’m not sure what to make of the guy. But if he is a patriot, he has a simple serving of truth for Camerota.
Former Trump campaign communications adviser Michael Caputo, who has worked for Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush and also formerly lived in Russia, told Alisyn Camerota on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday that of course, Russia tried to influence the U.S. election but that the United States does the same thing.
In fact, Caputo revealed that former Democrat President Bill Clinton sent him to Russia in 1994 to influence their election.
“Is it now your impression that Vladimir Putin was looking to somehow compromise, co-opt or play the Trump campaign?” Camerota asked.
“I think the Russian government looks to get involved in elections for every single one of the countries in United Nations Security Council, at least, and probably many many more,” Caputo replied. “Our country does the same — it’s important to note that in 1994, my government — the Clinton administration, sent me to Russia to get involved in their elections,” he explained.
He started off by making the same point I did, only he elaborated. When he served under Clinton, he was sent to Russia in 1994 to influence their election. He also pointed out that Russia is always looking for an opportunity to infiltrate and influence elections in all countries that sit on the UN Security Council. And actually, it’s many more than that. He also reminded Camerota that President Obama sent operatives to Israel to influence their election. Now, I don’t know if he’s making justifications for Russia here or just pointing out the hypocrisy of the left. This doesn’t give Russia a pass by any means, but in my book it makes the left look hypocritical and extremely corrupt.
Caputo did point out that for the left to act as if Russia is the only country meddling in elections of other countries is a “dubious claim.” Alisyn Camerota looked less than happy to have the network’s “Trump-Russia-Collusion” narrative challenged. It popped her narrative like a helium balloon. But it is the truth. It’s the way geopolitics is played and to think otherwise is to be very naive.
