Putin On Hacking Charges: It’s Like Anti-Semitism When People Say “The Jews Are To Blame” [VIDEO]

CNBC reports:

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday angrily denied allegations that Moscow meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, even comparing rhetoric about Russia to “anti-Semitism.” It’s like anti-Semitism,” he said, comparing Russia’s critics to people who would say things like “the Jews are to blame.”

Through a live translation in the televised interview with NBC News’ Megyn Kelly, Putin alleged that U.S. spies have “no specific evidence, no facts, just assumptions and allegations” to back their conclusion that the Kremlin attempted to assist Donald Trump in the election.

Pressed about the evidence, Putin argued that IP addresses could be manufactured and quipped that a 3-year-old could have hacked U.S. institutions.
