As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
Sen. Lindsey Graham, who believed he was talking to a top Turkish official, contradicted his recent statements and told Russian pranksters in August that the Kurds were a “threat.”
Alexey Stolyarov and Vladimir Kuznetsov, Russian pranksters believed to be tied to Russia’s intelligence services, called the South Carolina Republican in August posing as Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar. The call primarily focused on Turkey’s departure from the F-35 program, though Graham also touched on Turkey’s fight against Kurdish militants.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Your YPG Kurdish problem is a big problem,” Graham told the hoaxers, referencing the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, a group that has helped beat back ISIS in northern Syria.
Days later the Russian pranksters managed to get through to Graham a second time, and Graham said he had told President Trump about the first call.
“I like President Erdoğan. I think President Trump likes President Erdoğan. I think he’s a strong man and we need to deal with strong people,” Graham said on the call.
BELOW is the audio recording of one of the calls:
“Your YPG Kurdish problem is a big problem,” @LindseyGrahamSC said to the hoaxers.
The comments were an obvious contradiction to his fiery rhetoric in recent days. https://t.co/h1ZY04XsI7
