Oliver Stone, Bill Maher tweeted about the reliability of American intelligence on Russia: ‘Do you think they are lying? ‘

“You can not really think that a Russian president should have to rat-f — our elections like this, can you?” Maher asked Stone.

“Oh Bill, I’ve known you for too long and I think you’re sensible enough to know. We have to doubt everything that comes out of our intelligence agencies,” Stone replied. “If you have not learned that yet, you have a long way to go.”

“That they lie?” Frege Maher.

“Intelligence agencies are unreliable. They have been shocked with America going back to the Vietnam War, going back to the Iraq wars, the Afghanistan wars,” Stone retorts. “It’s very difficult to find out the truth about them. Everything they publish, the rumors, the anonymous sources, the think tanks, the anti-Russia … it all adds up to this ball of wax that becomes enormous .And then they have people like you who are generally skeptical, and believe.I would really triple check everything, each of those sources.

“I do not vote for Trump and he is a sad figure,” Stone concluded. “He was the wrong choice to be president. But to make our foreign policy dependent on Trump to attack, to get rid of Trump and an environment of ‘ “Making the Cold War with China and with Russia and with other countries is crazy and this stigma is not a policy.”

Stone has won several Oscars during his career, including for “Platoon,” “Wall Street,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “JFK,” which claims that Lee Harvey Oswald did not assassinate President John F. Kennedy in Nov. 1963, despite the Warren Commission’s conclusion.

“You had to have at least two shooters, and [Lee Harvey] Oswald was not one of them, “the 73-year-old told the Hollywood Reporter earlier this month.

Maher’s program has been broadcast from his backyard since the coronavirus pandemic hit the US earlier this year, but will return to its Los Angeles studio on August 28.
