Stupidest argument ever
in all those cases the US did it for its own self intrest, not the country they intervened in
And clearly Russia’s attack on the election was in their own self intrest. Implying a quid pro quo with the installed regime.
Which means Trump has to go as he isn’t working for the US’s intrest
No... The US is the hegemonic power in the world. Yes, Russia acted in her own self-interest as you would expect, but that doesn’t have to take the form of a preferred candidate. Russia sought to cause and sow discord among the American people, and they succeeded. That serves and served Russian interest far more than acting in a single preferred candidates favor to secure an election.
I disgree. Trump was clearly the preferred candidate
I called Putin’s leverage over Trump before the Steele dossier. It’s so fucking obvious
Why does the existence of one candidate that is more favorable to Russian interests necessarily imply a quid pro quo?
Because that was the case in OP’s list. The US almost always had a deal with the installed regimes. Iran 1953 was about oil, Panama 1903 was about the canal
But why would a corrupt Oligarchy target a real estate developer with multiple bankruptcies? Easy. He was laundering money for the Russians for years. Putin has so much shit on him
