Hør det med Hillarys egne ord: “Vi ønsker et stærkt og succesrigt Rusland!”

Hillary Clinton wants a strong, prosperous Russia

“We want very much to have a strong Russia, because a strong, confident, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world.”

A video excerpt from a 2010 interview then, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave to Russian TV host Vladimir Pozner. While Trump is now under a hailstorm of criticism over his handling of the recent Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Clinton back in the day praised a “strong, prosperous Russia.”

To give some context to the quote, Clinton was answering a question about “US’s place in the modern world” put by Pozner: “Is it a force aimed at supporting the world’s equilibrium? Or is it a force aimed at changing the status quo?”

“It’s both in this way, Vladimir. It is a force to sustain an equilibrium that permits countries and individuals to progress, to become more self-realizing,” Clinton replied. “I mean, we want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, competent, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world.”

“But at the same time, there are countries and places where the status quo is just not acceptable,” she went on. “Last summer, I went to the Democratic Republic of Congo. I went to Eastern Congo where 5.4 million people had been killed in the last 15 years, the greatest death toll since the Second World War. We don’t want that status quo to be sustained.”



Russiagate: A CIA Concocted Hoax

No Russian interference in America’s political process occurred in 2016, earlier, or is being cooked up for the nation’s November midterm elections.

Trump knows it and said so in Helsinki. When asked if he holds Russia accountable for anything, he said:

“I hold both countries responsible (for dismal bilateral relations). I think that the United States has been foolish. I think we’ve all been foolish…And I think we’re all to blame.”
