It’s time for Trump to be impeached again.
One of the former officials who testified in the impeachment hearings against Donald Trump has warned that Vladimir Putin has the US “exactly where he wants us”.
Speaking to CBS’s 60 Minutes in her first major interview since her testimony last year, Fiona Hill said that while the Russians did not invent the divisions in US politics and society they knew how to exploit them.
British-born Dr Hill was Donald Trump’s Russia expert at the National Security Council.
In November she testified to the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearings that Trump defenders spinning conspiracy theories about Ukraine were playing into Moscow’s hands.
Speaking to 60 Minutes in an interview being aired this weekend, Dr Hill said: “Putin, sadly, has got all of our political class, every single one of us, including the media, exactly where he wants us.
“He’s got us feeling vulnerable, he’s got us feeling on edge, and he’s got us questioning the legitimacy of our own systems.”
Asked to what extent she thought the increasing polarisation of US politics came from Russia, she said: “Well certainly in 2016 a lot of it did but they don’t invent the divisions.
“The Russians didn’t invent partisan divides. The Russians haven’t invented racism in the United States. But the Russians understand a lot of those divisions and they understand how to exploit them.”
This is the real shit, faggot.
We’re right where Putin wants us, gosh darn them all.
