Maddow: Official White House Helsinki Records Altered To Hide Putin's Preference For Trump

Rachel Maddow walks us all through how Donald Trump edited the *official* White House record to remove any reference to Putin's preference for Trump

This is FALSIFYING RECORDS. Official records. And the Trump Administration is doing it in broad daylight, knowing full well that Russia, news outlets, the internet and the entire world has the *real records.*

But do they care? No. And do Trump's supporters care? Probably not.

Here is the story: The White House literally deleted this question and the corresponding answer from the official record:

Reuters reporter, Jeff Mason asked Putin: "Did you want President Trump to win the election and did you direct any of your officials to help him do that?"

Putin responded: “Yes, I did. Because he talked about bringing the U.S./Russia relationship back to normal,.".


As George Orwell said in his dystopian novel, 1984:

"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes & ears. It was their final, most essential command" - Orwell, "1984"

And MAGA hat wearers will follow that command.
