HYPOCRITES! Bill Clinton Colluded With Russia, And The Media LOVES Him For It

“Yanks To The Rescue — The Secret Story Of How American Advisers Helped Yeltsin Win”, this is the title of the Time article written in 2001 about the 1996 Russian Presidential Election.

The article brags about how US-Russia relations were saved because top American political advisers helped Boris Yeltsin win re-election as President of Russia. Yeltsin was facing single-digit approval ratings and looked like ultra-communist Gennadi Zyuganov would steal the presidency. However, these political advisers were able to change the course of history.

Felix Braynin, an aide to Yeltsin, was part of the team that recruited the American help in the election:

Braynin began a series of confidential discussions with Yeltsin’s aides, including one with First Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Soskovets, who at the time was in charge of the President’s nascent re-election effort. Finally, in early February, Braynin was instructed to “find some Americans” but to proceed discreetly. “Secrecy was paramount,” says Braynin. “Everyone realized that if the Communists knew about this before the election, they would attack Yeltsin as an American tool. We badly needed the team, but having them was a big risk.”

Does that last part sound familiar maybe that is because the Democrats have repeatedly framed Trump as a “Russian tool”. It seems that they have forgotten that their own part was responsible for this US-Russian collusion in the 1990’s.

[Richard] Dresner had another connection that would prove useful later on. In the late 1970s and early ’80s, he had joined with Dick Morris to help Bill Clinton get elected Governor of Arkansas. As Clinton’s current political guru, Morris became the middleman on those few occasions when the Americans sought the Administration’s help in Yeltsin’s re-election drive.

Although Dresner denies dealing with Morris, three other sources have told Time that on at least two occasions the team’s contacts with Morris were “helpful”.

So Bill Clinton, the husband of the woman who started all the rumors about Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 US Presidential election was instrumental in the election of Boris Yeltsin in 1996.

It seems the Democrats have forgotten that their own party helped out other governments in their elections, and the main stream media (in this case Time) loved them for it.

The mainstream media has suffered a serious bout of amnesia — a Russian concussion, if you will.

    I missed that article in the paper.

  • DUTCHIET

    What does this have to do with what is going on today with Trump and his actions. Two wrongs make a right? It makes no sense except to take away from the facts that we need answers to what really happened, or didn’t.

    • IRAMOE

      HAHAHA let me say this with out meaning to be rude! ALL of the last Presidents since Kennedy have “talked” (colluded is now a media generated catch phrase) with MANY nations during the campaign season. Reagan and Iran is the big one that comes to mind. And that prove very beneficial, as you remember the hostages that were held for 444 day under Carter were released immediately after Reagan’s election. This happened BECAUSE of the talks that took place BEFORE the election. Stop falling into the media generated crap, read up on things you have questions about. All of this just shows how pathetic the American people are when it comes to knowing what they are talking about. Nobody researches anything!

      • DUTCHIET

        That still has nothing to do with the current situation. The people and events do not justify the actions taken by the Trump’s. You cannot equate one with the other. Russia is far from being a friend and Reagan talking with Iran was to do something positive for this country. Reagan did not get in bed with Iran, as Trump has with Putin.
        So why not focus on the current issue?

      • IRAMOE

        Tell me why it has nothing to do with Trump’s actions.

      • DUTCHIET

        Because past president’s contact was not aimed at undermining the election process. If the Trumps did get valuable information from the Russian (which they still may have), what was to be the payback? Talking to a friend is very different that working with Putin to change the outcome of the election and to owe him a favor. Trump’s action concerning Putin looks every much like he is in debt to the man.

      • IRAMOE

        Sure, North Viet Nam whom we were at war with and Iran who was holding American citizens hostage were GREAT friends! (Where are you coming up with this stuff?) And now nine months later you still have not one shred of evidence about any of your accusations of election fraud. Please don’t keep throwing points out here if you don’t know what yo are talking about.

      • IRAMOE

        WHAT? I see you don’t remember anything of the Iran situation! These two event’s have very much in common. And “Why not focus on the current issue?” you say? Because they are so exactly alike! Because they are TOTALLY alike . As was Kissinger talking to North Viet Nam after Johnson. Wake up! Do your own research ! Stop relying on trash that is SUPPOSED to be something new and wrong. Study history.

      • DUTCHIET

        OK, I just happen to have a Ph.D in history.
        But tell me where any of these conversation had any bearing on the outcome of your election. None, so they are not anywhere near the current issue. The enemy is Putin. Why do you cower to him, work with him to undermined the election and as a result undermind the nation. Working to end a war is a very far cry from owing a proven enemy a favor. Please think about it, you seems like a reasonable person

      • IRAMOE

        (wow this comment just now shows up) My statements have just as much to do with the outcome of an election as yours!! NONE! Nine months later and nothing. However, you , like every liberal i know, want to make the Russians and Putin as the enemy with NO evidence. Even Obama was caught saying to Putin “wait until my second term” ( or something to that effect here) which of course would be more evidence of collusion then anything you liberals have. Cower to whom? A leader of another country that was the first to offer help after 9/11? That sounds more like a friend to me. READ Mr. Ph.D! ( it seems everytime I have a discussion with a liberal they are Ph.Ds. Starting to thing they are like participation trophies, all liberals get them.

      • DUTCHIET

        Up until now you have been a joy to talk with. You appear to be knowledgeable and reasonable. Now you stoop to name calling or what you consider name calling. To be a liberal is just as honorable as to be a conservative. To belittle either because of a disagreement is wrong and cowardice. No one be he liberal or conservative hold all the truths. It is just that one hold more than the other.
        As for you assumption that Russia is an ally, just look at their voting record at the UN. When was the last time they supported any of our policies.
        As for 9/11 where is your proof?
        as for a PhD you make it sound like sour grapes

      • IRAMOE

        Sorry, you are taking a total liberal stance, so there fore. . . and I’m not calling names. I agree, liberals, conservatives; no biggie to me. Why are you thinking it’s belittling? After all that, you are assuming I think the Russians are Allies? I don’t remember coming close to that. I said they sound more like a friend after 9/11. Well Mr. Ph.D the proof of the 9/11 call by Putin is fact, here i will revert to my earlier statement, READ. You’ll find it it’s not hidden. As for your Ph.D, what i said is exactly what i meant. For some reason liberals expect me to cower to some piece of paper, sorry you’ve shown me I have no reason to do so. As have the others that don’t know what they are talking about.

      • DUTCHIET

        Why should I look up the actions of Russia after 9/11? I know they are no friend and besides Putin was not in power then, READ/ That was a time when there was reasonable leader ship in Russia, and you can look that up. READ
        Your disregard for an education is troubling and is close to how despots think. They feel being educated make one a danger to them. To think is to be free. They like Trump don’t like that threat.

      • IRAMOE

        Dutchiet You make me laugh, and you have a participation trophy not a REAL Ph.D. Your facts on history are a mess. I laughed for 3 days before I could bring myself to answer this in a civil manner! You can easily look up to see Putin was in power before, during and after 9/11 . Do yourself a favor and READ up on something before you open your mouth and try to bullshit your way through life. (liberals are what is wrong with this country)

      • IRAMOE

        I have NO idea what school you attended to get a Ph.D in history (and i don’t believe you period). You have NO correct knowledge of events and I find this a terrible waste of time. I would like to suggest that you would do as I suggested before and READ a book before you come out trying to tell the world how it was. You make your parents look stupid. . . . . .

      • DUTCHIET

        Once again when asked a question you attach the person questioning you. I have nothing to prove to someone who doesn’t have the commonsense of a child…Again when you are stupid as you are you have no idea how stupid, Have a good life and stay healthy

      • IRAMOE

        Child you are indeed! You are a total fibber. Your lack of the facts is a glaring show that you barely know anything of this conversation at all. How can you say, Nr. PH.D. that Putin wasn’t in power at the time of 9/11 and expect ANYONE to listen to you? Especially after your comments on other candidates talking with foreign leaders prior to Trump. Forget it, you are a waste of time and this conversation is over! Now go play with the other little kids.

      • DUTCHIET

        This is the last message to you.
        You have still not answered the question that explains that Putin was not in the total control as he is today. Check the history of he rise to power you fool. He did not just declare himself in charge. It is very difficult to get stupid people to understand that history in an on going process. There is a beginning and an end. Putin had to was not born in power he worked his way into power..but maybe that fact is too difficult of a concept for you to understand.
        I wish you good lick and above all good health, I will not be replying to any more of your bullshit

      • IRAMOE

        You sir are no Ph.D.

      • IRAMOE

        . . . .but I will give a participation trophy.
