Russia Responds To "Absurd" Election Meddling Allegations

The indictment of 13 Russian nationals and three entities over allegations by the DOJ that Russians interfered in US elections - but "did not alter the outcome of the 2016 election" nor that any American was a knowing participant in this activity - are absurd, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday.

"13 people interfered in the US elections?! 13 against an intelligence services budget of billions? Against intelligence and counterintelligence, against the latest developments and technologies? Absurd? Yes," Zakharova wrote in a post on Facebook.

Then again, what else could she say.

Furthermore, as noted in the DOJ complaint, the funding for the Russian operation came from catering and management companies controlled by defendant Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin, a Russian businessman often referred to as "Putin's chef" in the media because his organizations had hosted dinners for Russian President Vladimir Putin and foreign leaders, the AP reported.

Prigozhin was quoted in Russian state media responding to the indictments, saying, "Americans are really impressionable people. They see what they want to see. I greatly respect them. I’m not upset at all that I am on this list. If they want to see the devil, let them see him."

This probably means that Russia will not exactly rush to extradite the 13 named officials to the US. Although, judging by the pic below, one is already deeply embedded within US society...

Assuming that the DoJ is being truthful for once, how could 13 Ruskies outsmart the FBI, CIA, NSA, etc., and disrupt an entire election without notice?

After billions of squandered dollars on these bumbling .gov smartasses who spend tax money on hookers and coke, they can't track 13 Ruskies?

For real?

Then why don't we just shut them all down and save the money.

For the record, I do not believe anything out of the inaptly named Department of "Justice."

That said, they would be of more use if they solved Seth Rich's murder, the online threat from Nikolas Cruz, the 911 perps, the nonstop false flags, etc.

The Deep State must be in an absolute panic if they can get their flying monkeys in DoJ to face the cameras with such fairy tales.

They can thank their lucky stars that the MSM is so gullible.

Victoria Nuland said at the Washington DC Chevron presentation that the US spent $5 Billion in the Ukraine before the Color Revolution and coup de etat engineered by US / CIA / Brennan

and a bunch of guys spent a marginal amount of money to do some mischief in the USA while Hillary spent Billions on influencing the public  - I dont believe anything Mueller is reporting nor Rosenstein - this is cover your ass as the Congressional hearings gather evidence as diversion

it's always about economic control of a region...in this case it is the pipeline routes in question and the war is to control oil and gas pipelines and the power that comes with it.  All humanitarian bullshit is nothing but fluff and cover to hide the truth.  Don't get sucked in by the West controlled media---they will fry your brain!
