Putin denies Russian involvement in hacking of US election

Hosted by

In a reversal, Russian president Vladimir Putin conceded today in Moscow that Russian hackers might have meddled in the American election. Putin did not, however, admit any government involvement, referring instead to what he called "patriotically minded," private Russian hackers. "They are like artists," Putin said. David Filipov, Moscow bureau chief for the Washington Post, says Putin is positing himself as the reasonable minded counter to President Trump.
