Russian President Vladimir Putin is insisting that his country has never interfered with American domestic affairs. However, during an interview with Fox News, he appeared to defend the hacking of emails from the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential campaign. Putin pointed out that none of the hacked information was falsified, and that Americans deserved to know that DNC leadership was tipping the scales in favor of Hillary Clinton. When he was asked if Russia had some sort of incriminating information about President Trump, Putin said Trump was below Russia's radar before the campaign. Putin stated that there was no indication that Trump would actually run for President.
