A major Russian businessman who has been indicted for supposed Russian interference in the 2016 US election has declared that Americans are easily deceived and that the allegations made against him are rubbish. I think this whole situation is one big joke and is being used just to spark distractions amongst the American populace.
"Americans are very impressionable people. They see what they want to see. I have great respect for them. … If they want to see the devil, let them see one."

As we read in a report from the New York Daily News:
A Russian businessman known as “Putin’s chef” who was indicted Friday by federal prosecutors says “Americans are very impressionable people.” He says he’s not upset to be named in the indictment.
Thirteen Russians and three Russian companies were charged Friday with a plot to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election through social media propaganda.
The indictment says the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll farm, started interfering as early as 2014 in U.S. politics, extending to the 2016 presidential election.
The indictment says the agency was funded by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a St. Petersburg businessman dubbed “Putin’s chef” because his restaurants and catering businesses once hosted the Kremlin leader’s dinners with foreign dignitaries.
Prigozhin was quoted by Russia’s state news agency as saying Americans “see what they want to see.”
