Despite repeated claims of Russian US election meddling by Washington’s intelligence community, undemocratic Dems, and deplorable media scoundrels, operating as press agents for US power, no evidence proves any – NONE!

Plenty of evidence reveals no Russian hacking or any other type meddling occurred – clearly show information was leaked by a DNC insider, divulged by WikiLeaks.

The CIA under John Brennan bears full responsible for inventing the Russiagate scam – fabricated accusations of Russian meddling and false claims of Trump team’s improper or illegal dealings with the Kremlin, a scheme to delegitimize him and bash Russia irresponsibly.

In Vietnam for the 2017 APEC summit, Putin and Trump had only several brief exchanges, no formal meeting.

Earlier, Putin debunked the phony accusations of Russian US election meddling – telling Trump the same thing at the APEC summit.

Aboard Air Force One on route to Hanoi, Trump said he asked him about alleged Russian meddling.

“He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. I just asked him again. He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they are saying he did.”

“Every time he sees me he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it.”

“He says, ‘I didn’t do that.’ I think he is very insulted by it, which is not a good thing for our country.”

Putin was candid and straightforward in all his remarks – in addresses and answering questions.

Trump believes Putin was honest in saying no Russian meddling occurred. The New York Times lied claiming otherwise, suppressing, reinterpreting or distorting facts its specialty.

“Having a good relationship with Russia is a great, great thing,” Trump added. “This artificial Democratic hit job gets in the way, and that’s a shame, because people will die.”

Trump doesn’t believe Russia tried helping him defeat Hillary. He called accusations of Russian US election meddling “fantasies,” intending to delegitimize him.

At the APEC summit in Vietnam, he said

“(everything) about the so-called Russian dossier in the US is a manifestation of continuing domestic political struggle.”

Asked about contacts between his campaign team and Russians, he said he only heard about the allegation Friday.

“I don’t know anything about it,” he said. “I think these are some sort of fantasies.”

Russiagate is a CIA concocted plot, media scoundrels proliferating the Big Lie.

Trump is captive to America’s deep state, taking orders and executing them.

Yet at times, his remarks in answering questions and tweets differ from his scripted ones.

His deplorable actions speak for themselves, sticking to longstanding US policies – dirty business as usual they way things always work in America.
