MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said on MSNBC Monday that Vladimir Putin is a “mortal threat” to American politics.


Maddow, appearing as a guest on MSNBC’s “The Beat With Ari Melber” said, “The difference in Russia, the difference with Putin, is that what’s constantly looming over every point of conflict with Putin, anybody who’s challenging, anybody who’s rising to the point of being interesting in terms of opposing Putin, what constantly looms over that is your expectation that they will end up dead.”

“And you know, that’s not America. That’s not how we do things,” Maddow continued.

“For me it makes it very serious. I’m interested in the drama and the intrigue and everything. It makes it very serious that Putin got this far into our own politics. It is not just a threat to us. It’s a mortal threat to American politics to bring somebody this far into it who frequently and without any consequence kills his opponents,” she concluded.
