Will Donnie say it's Fake News, despite his Defense Chief saying it?

Mattis: Russia tried to interfere in 2018 midterms
[thehill.com]
Defense Secretary James Mattis said Saturday that Russian operatives attempted to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections, apparently confirming for the first time that Moscow attempted to meddle in last month's elections.

Mattis spoke of the relationship between the Trump administration and Russian President Vladimir Putin during an interview Saturday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.

"There is no doubt the relationship has worsened. He tried again to muck around in our elections this last month," Mattis said. "We are seeing a continued effort around those lines."

Mattis said the Trump administration and other NATO allies have pressed Russia repeatedly on un-democratic actions but to no avail.

"This is a very complex situation because clearly Mr. Putin is a slow learner," Mattis said. "He is not recognizing that what he is doing is actually creating the animosity against his people."

"We're dealing with someone we simply cannot trust," he added.

Is this really the first time he’s commented on this?

I’d rather hear it from Gina Haspel.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
