Putin Lashes Out At Obama: "Show Some Proof Or Shut Up"

Tyler Durden's picture

Putin has had enough of the relentless barrage of US accusations that he, personally, "hacked the US presidential election."

The Russian president's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Friday that the US must either stop accusing Russia of meddling in its elections or prove it. Peskov said it was "indecent" of the United States to "groundlessly" accuse Russia of intervention in its elections.

“You need to either stop talking about it, or finally show some kind of proof. Otherwise it just looks very indecent”, Peskov told Reporters in Tokyo where Putin is meeting with Japan PM Abe, responding to the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.

Peskov also warned that Obama's threat to "retaliate" to the alleged Russian hack is "against both American and international law", hinting at open-ended escalation should Obama take the podium today at 2:15pm to officially launch cyberwar against Russia.

Previously, on Thursday, Peskov told the AP the report was "laughable nonsense", while Russian foreign ministry spox Maria Zakharova accused "Western media" of being a "shill" and a "mouthpiece of various power groups", and added that "it's not the general public who's being manipulated," Zakharova said. "the general public nowadays can distinguish the truth. It's the mass media that is manipulating themselves."

Meanwhile, on Friday Sergei Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister told state television network, Russia 24, he was "dumbstruck" by the NBC report which alleges that Russian President Vladimir Putin was personally involved in an election hack.

The report cited U.S. intelligence officials that now believe with a "high level of confidence" that Putin became personally involved in a secret campaign to influence the outcome of the U.S. presidential election. "I think this is just silly, and the futility of the attempt to convince somebody of this is absolutely obvious," Lavrov added, according to the news outlet.

As a reminder, last night Obama vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election last month.  "I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio. 

US intelligence agencies in October pinned blame on Russia for election-related hacking. At the time, the White House vowed a "proportional response" to the cyberactivity, though declined to preview what that response might entail. Meanwhile, both President-elect Donald Trump, the FBI, and the ODNI have dismissed the CIA's intelligence community's assessment, for the the same reason Putin finally lashed out at Obama: there is no proof.

That, however, has never stopped the US from escalating a geopolitical conflict to the point of war, or beyond, so pay close attention to what Obama says this afternoon.

According to an NBC report, a team of analysts at Eurasia Group said in a note on Friday that they believe the outgoing administration is likely to take action which could result in a significant barrier for Trump's team once he takes office in January.

"It is unlikely that U.S. intelligence reports will change Trump's intention to initiate a rapprochement with Moscow, but the congressional response following its own investigations could obstruct the new administration's effort," Eurasia Group analysts added.

At the same time, Wikileaks offered its "validation" services, tweeting that "Obama should submit any Putin documents to WikiLeaks to be authenticated to our standards if he wants them to be seen as credible."

We doubt Obama would take the whistleblower organization on its offer, even if he did have any Putin documents to authenticate.

What a sorry bunch of losers. They have high level of confidence but not a shread of proof. Amateurs in dangerous positions.

I have a similar one checked off about the same.

When the MSM starts believing their own bullshit, they are in more than deep trouble. When one of our most patriotic whistle blowers must seek refuge in Russia, you know that our Federal government can no longer be trusted about anything.

This is BEYOND absurd and hypocritical.

As though the USA and other nations (UK, Israel, et al)

did not constantly attempt to "hack" accounts of Russian political figures and

use the information to advance their agendas.

 

And in this particular case, Russia was not even responsible!

And furthermore, by any objective standard, the exposure of Clinton crookedness

was a good honorable service to the US public.

And that's the message the "free press" should be promulgating.

sheesh.

Donald Trump needs to make it clear that everyone from Obama downwards will be held accountable for any actions which are illegal or threaten U.S. and Global stability.

Liars will think twice if they consider that they may find themselves in the crosshairs; they should be clear that their lies will have consequences; personal consequences.

The proof needs to be in the open, or the liars risk their lives.

This is this is just a sorry attempt by Obama, the Clintons and the Demos to deflect blame for their electioneering incompetence in order to salvage their Demo donor base whose donations have now all gone down the drain. If they can convince the donors of this Russia horseshit -- and the donors are very gullible and willing to be duped -- they can continue taking in big bucks. The public doesn't believe it, Putin doesn't believe it, and American intelligence agencies don't believe it. Trump should mention Demo fundraising as the motivation for this Russia chicanery.

just the tip's picture

respectfully.

i have the exact opposite opinion.  the donors of which you speak, koch bros., soros, etc., are the ones driving this.   they neither need convincing, nor do they care about shoddy electioneering.  they are trying to salvage, their, policies & programs.  i.e., the koch bros. stand to lose billions if trump brings back coal.  the rest of the donors i will leave up to your own conclusions.  i.e., soros, etc.

Speaking of meddling in other peoples elections:  “I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”

Obama's intent is to create a public zeitgeist which makes it impossible for Trump to have any kind of rapprochement with Putin.

Obama is smacking the Trump Presidency in the face and it is time to respond.

Lets see what kind of balls you got Obama.  Back Putin into an effin corner for some frivilous bullshit.  Only problem is, he might just be so butt hurt that hes willing to do it and ditch for his bunker.  A nuclear war is the only option this twisted f*ck has to keep Trump out.  And he might just be sick enough to do it.

I've yet to see Putin make a fool of himself. So I would bet the Russians are confident about the situation. She was so bad, the Russians figured they'd have to do nothing even if they were tilted to Trump. They were right.

Putin came up through the ranks of the KGB.  He was a trained spy/spymaster.  He navigated through a Byzantine and deadly bureaucracy and wrangled his way to become Russia's leader.  A life-time of deadly, real-life games.  Then he sees an ignorant, uneducated, mulatto, AA douche-nozzle become the U.S. president.  An ignoramus (57 states, corpseman, Austrians speaking Austrian) no different than a ghetto ape.  And he has spent the last 8 years dealing with this unserious dilettante.  I imagine that he actually pined for the days of the Cold War and dealing with a Nixon or Reagan.  While Russia did not interfere with our election, I am sure that they wish they had done so to keep another douche, Hellary, from becoming president.

"... "Obama should submit any Putin documents to WikiLeaks to be authenticated to our standards if he wants them to be seen as credible."" Yes he should.  Obama has made a sham of the entire government.  It's ridiculous that they continue to lie and expect that US citizens even slightly believe their crap at the point.  Even Obamanistas know he is lying.

It makes no difference, when you make unsubstantiated claims against any government w/o proof, you make yourself and your own country look like rubes.

I hope we only have a month of this fudge-packer left in office.
