Clapper: Both Trump and Putin ‘Are in a State of Denial About the Russian Meddling’

‘Obviously Putin will continue to deny that there was any Russian meddling’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CLAPPER: "No, I’m not because when you think about it, both of them are in a state of denial about the Russian meddling. Obviously Putin will continue to deny that there was any Russian meddling. So he’s in his reality world. And of course President Trump does not want to acknowledge it because when he does in his mind I think it casts doubt on the legitimacy of his election. So shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody that they’re just not going to bring it up."
