‘Stay out’: Bernie Sanders slams ‘thug’ Putin after Russia exposed for trying to help his presidential campaign.


Published February 21, 2020


Quote:
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, the current presidential frontrunner for the Democrats, had decidedly harsh words for President Vladimir Putin after the Washington Post reported he had been briefed by federal officials that Russia is working to get him elected.

“I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president,” Sanders told The Washington Post in a statement.

“My message to Putin is clear: Stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”

“Unlike Donald Trump, I do not consider Vladimir Putin a good friend. He is an autocratic thug,” Sanders also said. “I don’t care, frankly, who Putin wants to be president. My message to Putin is clear: stay out of American elections, and as president I will make sure that you do.”


Many are heralding the Independent Senator from Vermont who, unlike President Donald Trump whose campaign was assisted by Russia in 2016 and is also now being aided, Sanders emphatically told Putin to stop.

@hightor,
Sander's response is in stark contrast to Trump's, that's what's important, not how Putin responds.

@izzythepush,
That's true. But sharing some ideas of what to do about it might be nice. It's US voters who need to be educated, not Putin.

@hightor,
I think Sanders has made a good start. Trump has given an object lesson in how to do nothing about it at all, so anything Sanders would do has to be better than that.

I've said this on another thread, but Putin's main objective is to sow confusion among voters and distrust in public institutions, supporting Trump and Sanders fits in with that.

@izzythepush,
Yeah...Russia (China, Iran, North Korea, etc) don't care who actually wins. They just want to enjoy watching the divided USA tearing itself apart, abandoning its long-time principles, and retreating from the world stage.

The Russians arnt helping Bernie, they are helping Trump by getting Bernie as the democratic candidate because they know they can kick Bernie's ass. When the republicans get done with Bernie they will have convinced the voters he is more communist than Putin.

The following are (exact) quotes from Bernie Sanders
directed at Vladimir Putin and Russia, contained in the following video.



"Here is the message, to Russia.

Stay out of American elections.

And what they are doing, by the way,

The ugly thing that they are doing.

And I seen some of their, you know, their tweets and stuff,

is They try to divide us up.

That's what they did in 2016.

That is the ugliest thing they are doing,

is they are trying to cause chaos.

They are trying to cause hatred in America.

It's an ugly business, and all of us, uh has got to say sorry you're not going to do this in this election.

And again as president of the United States, Mr. Putin, you will not interfere in our elections. "

@RABEL222,
"When the republicans get done with Bernie they will have convinced the voters he is more communist than Putin."

Sanders might be a closet communist that would be someone who is secretly disappointed the communist lost the cold war. Sanders shows the signs; he has praised communist countries and criticized the US during the cold war, but has not expressed any concern for the millions of people the communist killed, murdered.

Sanders Introduces Resolution to Protect American Democracy from Russian Meddling.


Thursday, July 19, 2018


WASHINGTON, July 19 — Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced a resolution Thursday to force members of the Senate to go on the record in accepting the assessment of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and the looming threat of Russian interference in this year's midterm elections.

The resolution also calls for the Senate to commit to safeguard the U.S. election system, protect the ongoing investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller and demand that President Donald Trump cooperate with the investigation.

Sanders will speak on the floor regarding the resolution at 11:20 a.m. today.

"If President Trump won't confront Putin about interference in our elections and his destabilizing policies, Congress must act. Tweets and speeches are fine, but we need more from Republican senators now," Sanders said. “If their leadership won’t allow votes on this extraordinarily important matter, then my Republican colleagues must join with Democrats to make it happen or all of their words are worthless.”

On Monday, President Trump embarrassed and undermined the values of the United States by openly siding with Russia’s authoritarian leader, Vladimir Putin, against the unanimous assessment of the U.S. intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

In response to international backlash, President Trump claimed he misspoke and blamed the media for reporting what he said, but still sowed doubt about Russia’s electoral interference by claiming it “could be other people also.” Trump’s constantly shifting answers indicate that he still does not fully acknowledge the threat to American democracy.


Sanders’ resolution states that the U.S. Senate:

1. Accepts the assessment of the United States intelligence community with regard to interference by the Russian Federation in elections in the United States and in other democracies;

2. Must move aggressively to protect our election systems from interference by Russia or any foreign power, and work closely with our democratic partners around the world to do the same;

3. Demands that the sanctions against Russia that were passed last year be fully implemented by the president;

4. Will not accept any interference with the ongoing investigation of Special Counsel Mueller, such as the offer of preemptive pardons or the firing of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and that the president must cooperate with this investigation; and

5. Declares that the President must cooperate with the investigation of Special Counsel Mueller.

@longly1,
I looked very closely and didn't see any Putin shyt on Bernie's nose like is on Trumps. How many secret meetings did Bernie have with Putin and other commies as opposed to Trump since he has been in office. You and people like you are not only blind but also deaf and dumb.

Bernie Sanders tweeted that Pres. Trump has never met a leader of an authoritarian nation
(Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Philippines) that he hasn't liked.

Bernie Sanders tweeted that Pres. Trump at home, shows contempt for the U.S. Constitution and democracy.


In the following video interview:

Bernie Sanders talking about Pres. Trump, says we have a president attacking the media everyday as fake news, encouraging republican governors around the country to suppress the vote, playing the race card in the sense of trying to divide us up by the color of our skin, by the country that we came from, while he's doing all of these things he has wonderful things to say about Mr. Putin. The idea that he reports back to us that Mr. Putin said that Russia did not have anything to do, in terms with interfering with our elections, and he believes him, while he does not believe the intelligence agency of the United States of America is beyond absurd.

In the following video Bernie says:

"Russia's aggressive actions in the Crimea and in Ukraine have brought about a situation where President Obama and N.A.T.O. correctly, I believe, are saying you know what we're going to have to beef up our troop level in that part of the world, to tell Putin that his aggressiveness is not going to go unmatched, that he is not going to get away with aggressive actions. "

I believe that Sanders has the best chance of beating Trump than the other Democrat candidates. Sanders could win for the same reason that Trump won; he could offer the little people hope that things will get better. Things working against him are his communist leaning and the fact he is in or associated with the Democrat party and their attempting to do things like ban guns and this green new deal things.

But what did Obama do? Did he give or sell weapons to the Ukrainians no he gave them MRE instead? Obama was too afraid of the Russians to do anything significant. It was Trump that provided the Ukrainians with weapons that enables them to kill Russian tanks.

@longly1,
I don't know what to think any more. I like Bernie. Can he beat Trump? How the hell do I know. I suppose he has as much chance as any other candidate.

The logical part of me says that Trump can't possibly win another term. The rational part of me says that Trump can't possibly lose.

So... what the hell. Go Bernie.

My concern with Sanders is not his socialism after all social security is socialist; it is an important system that has worked well for the most part. It is his actions in the Cold War and suspicion about what he would do if elected that puts me off. If I could believe he wouldn’t try to do something like ban guns or tax rich to the point they leaving the country would I vote for him.
