Putin says 'nothing compromising' in Trump call to Ukraine leader

Moscow (AFP) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday defended Donald Trump over accusations the US leader pressured Kiev to dig up dirt on a rival, saying there was "nothing compromising" in transcripts of the call.

"I see nothing compromising in the conversation between Trump and (Ukrainian leader Volodymyr) Zelensky," Putin said of the phone call that has sparked an impeachment probe in the US.

"President Trump turned to a colleague with a request to investigate possible corruption relating to members of the former administration," the Russian leader said at an energy forum in Moscow.

"Any head of state would have had to do the same."

"They have already been using any excuse to attack President Trump. Now it's Ukraine," Putin added.

Putin also took aim at the Mueller Report, which concluded that Russia tried to swing the 2016 election in the Republican's favour but did not establish evidence of collusion between the Trump camp and Moscow.

"He didn't find any evidence of us colluding with Trump in the past, but said there was a risk we might do so in the future... It would be funny if it weren't so sad," said Putin.

Asked if Russia would try to meddle in the US 2020 presidential election, Putin joked: "I'll let you into a secret -- yes! We absolutely will... Just don't tell anybody."

The White House last week released a transcript of a call this summer between Trump and a recently elected Zelensky.

It showed that Trump asked Zelensky to probe Democratic rival Joe Biden, and the Democrats are looking into whether Trump used a delayed $400 million (365.8 million euros) aid package as leverage.

Ukraine is fighting an ongoing war in its east against Russia-backed separatists, which broke out after Moscow's annexation of Crimea in 2014.

Did I say that?  Must you always label people that disagree with you.

Sometimes the views of some Russians are more truthful and honest than radical far left progressives such as yourself.

A Senator King ( I ) was on two nights ago  and stated that according to the official WH record that the phone call was exactly 30 minutes long.

Congressional aides apparently role played the conversation per the "official memorandum of the transcript"

and could not make the conversation last more than 11 minutes.

Zelensky speaks English so there was no need for a translator.

Where is the other 18 - 19 minutes and what was discussed between the two Presidents while Pompeo ( and others?) listened in?

I am certain of two things concerning the phone call.

  • That Putin heard the whole phone call, all 30 minutes of it, not just the ten minutes released to the American public.
  • That Putin rarely if ever tells the truth.

Remember Cuba, when Russia insisted they were not installing missile sites in Cuba, how truthful the Russian's were then?

Nothing has changed in that regard.

They are still lying about Eastern Ukraine, Crimea and the downed Malaysian airliner.

Like anyone believes him or anyone in this fucked up disgraceful administration.

Add Pompeo to the growing list of liars.

Pompeo confirms he was on call between Trump and Ukraine leader

The call was on the up and up and Pompeo listening in was part of his job.

Slowly gathering evidence of the previous administration's crime of gathering dirt on Trump by the use of a fake FISA warrants

Then why did he first DENY he was on the call

Nope, this POS administration is lie, deflect, and then forced to finally tell the truth.

Pompeo, Giuliano, Barr, et.al. No wonder the new press secretary is invisible. How can you defend the words of this administration when those words change daily. It is simply embarrassing on it's face and simply frightening in it's implications.

Who is the new press secretary?  Is he or she just an "Acting Press Secretary"?

This whole administration is 'acting'...and poorly, as if in a junior high school theater production. Sadly, it has become a farce...when they thought they were scripted to do a reality show.

Who cares what Putin says? He has no business in our state of affairs

3.1  Greg Jones  replied to  Trout Giggles @3    3 weeks ago

He's not. Never has been. Never interfered in our election. He said it, and someone posted it

Trying to influence it is of course another story, like Obama tried to do in the Israeli election.

That's legal, and not unethical.

Stealing emails from one of the US political parties and giving them to someone to release is more than trying to "influence" the election. It is a crime. 

You probably need some better news sources than the ones you currently use.

Why are you bringing up Hillary's "deleted" emails that she left dangling for anyone to hack?

Or was it the DNC's emails that some fool gave up the password to?

Why did they refuse to let the FBI experts look at the DNC server?  Hiding something?

You shouldn't take things personally.

None of all this back and forth means anything or is important in the real world.

then don't make things personal. Calling someone un-American and un-patriotic is pretty personal, wouldn't you think?

It seems the right/gop and this 'president' are the unAmerican pukes here.  

Obviously tRump only supports his own interests (as in lining his pockets and looting the treasury as fast as his fat greasy little fingers allows), as does his cabinet and administration and the majority of the gop senate (as in lining their pockets and looting the treasury as fast as their greedy corrupt fingers allows).

Wonder why you would leave out the Democrats in the Senate that do the very same thing? Oh, wait..............never mindjrSmiley_19_smiley_image.gifjrSmiley_18_smiley_image.gif

Because the democrats aren't complicit in all of the 'presidents' wrongdoings.

What does complicit in the president's "wrong doings" (jrSmiley_10_smiley_image.gif ) have to do with lining their pockets and looting the treasury? You know. That statement YOU posted.
