Quote: “[Putin] managed to sow doubt about our electoral system. He managed to help defeat the candidate that he despised, Hillary Clinton. He managed to get the first national security adviser adviser fired, he managed to instigate multiple counterintelligence investigations, and now he’s managed in effect to cause the president to fire the FBI director who is investigating him because of concerns about collusion with Russia.”
