Rep. Adam Kinzinger: Russia Is Not Our Ally, Putin Is a "Bad Dude"

November 9, 2017

Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger joins Cheddar to remind us that Russia is not our ally. He says that the administration's possible involvement with Russian interference in the U.S. elections remains unclear, but the country needs to adopt a tougher stance on the issue.

"[Putin] is actually a bad dude," Kinzinger said. He points out that prior administrations that have been optimistic about smoothing over relations with him have never succeeded.

"He's really just an old KGB agent that wants to basically tear up the old way of Eastern Europe," Kinzinger said.
