Murphy Implies Putin, Kremlin Are Controlling Trump

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) made the bold claims in an interview with CNN's New Day on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) suggested that “if you want to believe that Putin is literally pulling the strings on this administration, then this is exactly how it would play out.”

See the video and description below, via NTK Network:

Murphy laid out the following case for a Russia-controlled administration: “You would have the president of the United States clouding the case as to whether Russia is controlling this insurgency in eastern Ukraine. You would have him hinting at the withdrawal of sanctions. You would making moral equivalences between Putin’s killing of journalists and political opponents, and U.S. military activities.”

Murphy called for House and Senate investigations to uncover Trump’s Russia connections.
