Putin echoes Trump, Nunes lines on U.S. Russia investigation [View all]

Russian President Vladimir Putin appears to have adopted President Trump’s rhetoric about the ongoing probes on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, calling it “fiction” and accusing the Democrats of inventing the allegations because they are still bitter about losing.

The Kremlin leader told Le Figaro, a French newspaper, that the allegations were inspired by the “desire of those who lost the U.S. elections to improve their standing,” the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Putin also repeated his firm denial of Russian involvement with the hacking of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee — hacks that negatively impacted the Democrats in the election.
“They want to explain to themselves and prove to others that they had nothing to do with it, their policy was right, they have done everything well, but someone from the outside cheated them,” Putin told the paper. “It’s not so. They simply lost, and they must acknowledge it.”
