Russian Satellite News Agency reported Nov. 16 that Mark Warner, Senator of the Supreme Democratic Party of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the cost of Russian interference in elections in the United States, France and the United Kingdom was lower than the price of an F-35 fighter plane.
Warner said the United States spends a lot on weapons, while "Russia's interference in elections in the United States, France and Britain costs less than the price of an F-35 fighter plane." The price of a F-35 fighter is about $80 million.
The Senator pointed out that U.S. agencies, including intelligence agencies, were caught off guard by Russia's actions. He added that although there were still some loopholes in the electoral system, the United States had "improved" in the mid-term elections.
On July 16, Trump pointed out at a joint news conference between Helsinki and Russian President Vladimir Putin that both sides were "wrong" in the suspected Russian interference in the US elections, which aroused angry criticism in the United States.
Trump also told a press conference with Putin that he had not seen evidence of Russian interference in the American elections, which the Kremlin denied. Trump told reporters on the 17th that he said something wrong, but in fact he said the opposite: Russia may have intervened in the election.
On July 18, Trump said that Russian President Vladimir Putin could be held personally responsible for Russia's seemingly interference in American elections. When interviewed by CBS television, Trump said, "yes, because he is the head of a country. Like I think I should be responsible for what happened in the United States. Therefore, as a national leader, you can certainly think that he should be responsible. "
The U.S. Congress is investigating Russia's interference in the U.S. general election and President Trump's "Russia Gate". Miller, former director of the Federal Bureau of investigation, was appointed special prosecutor for the investigation.
U.S. President Trump said in 2017 that his political opponents were in collusion with intelligence agencies to investigate him before the election. Trump himself called it "witch hunt" and named it "American shame". Russia has repeatedly refuted allegations of interference in the U.S. elections, which Presidential Press Secretary Peskov said were groundless.
