Too Good To Check? Putin Was Targeting Hillary As Payback

Lots of anonymous sources, but, could this be something? And, if it is, why so little Credentialed Media coverage?

(Daily Caller)  U.S. intelligence overheard a Russian operative brag about targeting Hillary Clinton in the upcoming 2016 presidential election as payback for an “influence campaign” the former secretary of state ran against Vladimir Putin five years earlier.

Senior intelligence officials told Time that a Russian military intelligence officer with GRU said his group “was going to cause chaos in the upcoming U.S. election” to “pay Clinton back for what President Vladimir Putin believed was an influence operation she had run against him” during Russian elections.

There’s no doubt that Russia attempted to interfere with our elections. Heck, we’ve done it to them. The U.S. has done it to other countries. Whatever your opinion of Mr. Obama, he is a former two term POTUS, and he just interfered with the French elections, and attempted interference during Brexit. Such is world statecraft.

But, this puts a different spin on this whole thing. If any other Republican had been running, Putin would still probably have gone after Hillary. And, had she won, it is easy to ponder that Putin would have caused more havoc, as Russia probably has lots of her hacked emails.
