Putin Leaps To Trump's Defence Over Impeachment

Vladimir Putin leapt to Donald Trump's defense after the president was impeached, saying the claims against him are 'far-fetched' and 'made up'.
The Russian president told an end-of-year news conference that Trump was likely to survive a Senate trial after the House of Representatives voted to charge the president on two counts - abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Echoing the White House's language, Putin said the 'party that lost the election is continuing the fight by other means'.

Putin also likened the impeachment to the Robert Mueller probe into Trump's alleged links to Russia, which threw up no hard evidence of collusion.

'It still needs to go through the Senate, where the Republicans have a majority,' Putin said in Moscow today.

Predicting that Trump would stay in office, he said: 'It is hardly likely that they are going to push out of office a representative of their own party, on grounds that are absolutely made up.'

Putin added that Russia is ready to agree on a new START arms treaty with the United States, but that there has been no response to Russian proposals.
