Democrats and their propagandists in the media are apoplectic over claims that Russia intervened in the 2016 election, but as Ben Shapiro wrote at the Daily Wire Monday, the Donks were just fine with Russians intervening in at least three U.S. elections when meddling from abroad suited their needs.
According to Shapiro:
Go all the way back to March 2012, when [Barack] Obama met with [Vladimir] Putin stooge and then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev. Obama was caught on a live microphone telling Medvedev, “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space.”
Medvedev replied, “Yeah, I understand, I understand your message about space. Space for you…”
To which Obama said, “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”
Medvedev answered genially, “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
“Democrats were fine with that one,” Shapiro notes, adding:
In fact, they then proceeded to spend the rest of the election cycle mocking Republican candidate Mitt Romney for stating that Russia posed the greatest geopolitical threat to the United States. Obama himself mocked Romney by stating that ‘The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.’ He then handed control of Syria to Putin, and followed by doing little as Russia invaded Ukraine.
In 1983, Shapiro continues, “Senator Teddy Kennedy (D-Mass.) wanted to run for president, and so he sent a friend, John Tunney, to Moscow”…
