Are The DNC Email Leaks Russian President Putin's Revenge Against Hillary Clinton For Comparing Him To Hitler 2 Years Ago?
NBC: Why Putin Hates Hillary Clinton
If Russia is indeed behind the damaging leak of Democratic Party emails on the eve of its national convention, it's not just because President Vladimir Putin likes Republican nominee Donald Trump and his pro-Russian views, former U.S. officials and experts tell NBC News.
It's because the former KGB operative hates Trump's Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, with such a passion that he wants to embarrass her personally and undermine - if not derail - her presidential campaign, they say.
For a Russian leader who is considered as vain as he is ruthless, Clinton's criticism long ago crossed over from the political into the personal. He carries a grudge against a woman who has publicly compared him to Hitler and expressed doubts that he has a soul.

WNU Editor: I forgot about Hillary Clinton's direct interference in the last Russia Presidential campaign. I was in Moscow at the time, and many in the Russian media were angry at her for her remarks. Many political opponents of Putin were also not happy with her comments .... Russians are like Americans .... when a foreign country criticises and attacks your leader, the instinct is to then circle the wagons. But when she compared Putin to Hitler .... that really crossed the line .... Hillary Clinton Compares Russian President Putin And Russia To Hitler And The Nazis (March 5, 2014). To Russians .... that is unforgivable. On a side note .... I did mention in a post 2 years ago that her remarks on comparing Putin to Hitler will have consequences .... especially if she should become President .... Former Secretary of State Clinton Walks Back On Putin Nazi Comparison (March 6, 2014).
Wow .... even I am sometimes surprised on how accurate I can be.
