Baker: Sen. Johnson’s Repeating Putin’s Talking Points by Calling Capitol Mob ‘Fake Agents’

‘That’s the kind of lies put out there in order to explain away facts and scenes and pictures and, in this case, prosecutions that are obviously hard to refute, if not impossible to refute’

EXCERPT:

BAKER: “And you know, I’ve seen this before, Willie. What I saw I saw this in Russia. This is exactly the kind of mentality that Vladimir Putin used to say all the time. He would tell people that demonstrators in the streets were really fake agents of foreign provocateurs, really American stooges. They weren’t really Russians who actually oppose him because nobody could possibly oppose him. And that’s the kind of lies put out there in order to explain away facts and scenes and pictures and in this case prosecutions that are obviously hard to refute if not impossible to refute.”
