Putin and Hillary
Stories that Vladimir Putin hates Hillary Clinton and was responsible for fake news about her that might have contributed to her having lost the election are wide of the mark. Or at least partially so. Putin is notorious for stealing things from foreign dignitaries but also tried to steal Ms Clinton's heart. She rebuffed his advances.
Ever since Putin has been furiously jealous.
The stories that have been disseminated about Ms Clinton were not about his desire to keep her from the presidency per se. They were because he felt he would be unable to control himself in her presence and would be putty in her hands if they had to negotiate over anything. 'All she would have to do is flutter those babushka eyes at me and I would do whatever she wanted,' he is reported to have said.
