(National Sentinel) Turnabout: Conservative author, columnist, and pundit Ann Coulter appeared on Breitbart Radio Sunday to discuss “the Russia thing,” noting that Moscow’s meddling in U.S. politics is nothing new and that “payback’s a bitch.”
“It was only on November 8 that they suddenly decided, ‘Um, no let’s go back and look at this Russia thing.’ And now they just want to nag us to death until we all agree that Russia hacked the [Democratic National Committee] DNC,” Coulter told Breitbart News Daily with Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.
“But look, there’s no evidence they did it. If they did it who cares? If they did it, they certainly didn’t do it to help Trump, I mean it’s preposterous,” Breitbart News reported.
Marlow noted as well that Russian influence operations — in the U.S., in Europe, and elsewhere — is a normal state of things, and that attempts to sway the 2016 election aren’t out of the norm.
“That’s what they do, they’re the Russians,” he said.
Other countries — adversaries and allies alike — constantly attempt to influence the American public and U.S. politicians to support policies favorable to them. The U.S. does the same thing, both Marlow and Coulter noted.
“[The Russians] are pikers compared to China, Israel, and Mexico interfering with our elections all the time,” said Coulter, who also dimed out global socialist George Soros as having far more involvement in disrupting the American electoral process.
“And, moreover, we do it all day long to other countries,” Coulter said of the United States. “We, I think it’s worth mentioning here, including someone we allow to live and enjoy this country’s largess, George Soros, who has specifically spent a billion dollars intervening in former Soviet satellite states.”
“All those the ‘Rose Revolution,’ the ‘Orange Revolution,’ that was George Soros working hand in hand with our State Department demanding that they overturn elections or re-run them again. So, ya know payback’s a bitch,” she said.
“Now that we’re all on the same page, that it’s the act of foulest espionage to interfere with another country’s election, how about we agree that George Soros won’t interfere with anyone else’s election and Russia will stop interfering in ours?” said Coulter.
