Here is Robert Mueller stating Saddam had WMDs and had the will to use them against the U.S. and her allies:
This is Iraq WMD lies 2.0 and my mind is blown people are falling for it. Do we forget how much the Democrats worshipped Russia in 2012?
Romney, who calls Russia our "No. 1 geopolitical foe," doesn't seem to realize it's the 21st century. #RomneyNotReady
- The Democrats -
After all, you don't call Russia our No. 1 enemy -- not Al-Qaida, Russia -- unless you're still stuck in a Cold War mind warp.

You (Romney) said Russia (was our no. 1 enemy), in the 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years. But Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s.

"Mitt Romney talks like he's seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.
The DNC even made a poster mocking Romney about watching Rocky IV to get his foreign policy: https://theintercept.com/wp-uploads/sites/1/2016/09/romneykerry.jpg

Vice President Joe Biden assailed Mitt Romney as “fundamentally wrong” and “totally out of touch” on foreign policy in a campaign speech Thursday — contrasting that to a record of President Barack Obama’s tough but right choices.
Drawing contrasts between President Barack Obama and comments Romney has made on the campaign trail in 2008 and this year, Biden attacked the former Massachusetts governor for being “one of a small group of Cold War holdovers,” for naming Russia as a major threat to the United States and at times referring to Soviets.
"I don’t know whether it’s a slip of the tongue or a mind-set … Everybody slips. I never do, but everyone does,” Biden said in a self-deprecating nod to his own gaffes.[/quote]

VLADIVOSTOK, Russia — President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia sauntered into American presidential politics on Thursday, praising President Obama as “a very honest man” and chastising the Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, for describing Russia as “without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe.”[/quote]

Trade With Russia Is a Win-Win. By making Moscow a normal trading partner, Congress would create American jobs and advance human rights.

Sure, let's just ignore the past 6 years then.
Americans as a whole, have been incredibly critical of Russia ever since they annexed Crimea in 2014.
Americans, Republicans and Democrats were pretty positive about Russia during the 2000's.
It doesn't make any sense to pull up quotes from 2012, and act like it's hypocrisy. Things change. Russia has done things since those comments were made, and ignoring the past 6 years and acting like it makes Democrats hypocrites or something is ignorant. Russia-US relations have been strained due to actions of Russia for the past 6 years.
It should be noted there's no proof Russia even did it. The FBI never investigated the servers. It was "investigated" a third party that is pro-Democrat and anti-Russia.
I think Russia hacking the DNC is an even bigger lie than WMDs.
The CIA, and many other intelligence agencies confirmed that Russia had connections to the people that were responsible.
