Leftists feared that Russians meddled in the 2016 presidential election to help candidate Donald Trump.
Two years later and there’s still no proof.
However, Russia did attempt to mess with America’s elections and have for some time.
Now, Secretary of Defense James Mattis drops a big accusation against Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding the recent midterm elections…
Defense Secretary James Mattis said Saturday that Russian operatives attempted to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections, apparently confirming for the first time that Moscow attempted to meddle in last month’s elections.
Mattis spoke of the relationship between the Trump administration and Russian President Vladimir Putin during an interview Saturday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California.
Mattis: “There is no doubt the relationship has worsened. He tried again to muck around in our elections this last month. We are seeing a continued effort around those lines.”
He added, “This is a very complex situation because clearly Mr. Putin is a slow learner. He is not recognizing that what he is doing is actually creating the animosity against his people.”
“We’re dealing with someone we simply cannot trust.”

See it differently?
From Daily Wire:
Pence and Putin met up on the sidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations conference in Singapore on Friday, where foreign leaders discussed arms control and other pressing issues. As they shook hands — and for a good while after — Pence cast a steely glare at Putin, never breaking eye contact.

Reports say the two discussed election meddling.
National Security Adviser John Bolton has made an announcement that won’t please Americans who disagree with President Trump.
According to Bolton, Putin will visit the White House sometime in 2019.
Here’s the scoop, via AP News:
TBILISI, Georgia (AP) — U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been invited to visit Washington next year.
Trump sent Putin a strong message by pulling out of the nuclear deal with Russia.
From Daily Wire:
The Trump Administration announced Sunday that they intend to pull out of a nuclear arms treaty, inked with Russia during the Cold War, and accused Moscow of expanding their base of nuclear weapons in violation of the treaty.
The mainstream media and liberals across the nation have blamed President Trump’s rhetoric for 12 Democrats being sent faulty “bombs” by a deranged maniac.
And yet, they ignore stories of Republicans (like Trump and Mattis) being sent letters containing ricin.
From Daily Wire:
A Utah man has been charged with sending a series of letters threatening to unleash the deadly poison ricin to President Donald Trump, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and several other top administration officials, CNN reports.
