Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to "delegitimize the west" and has succeeded because of the Trump administration's attacks on the FBI, former Vice President Joe Biden said.

During an interview that aired on MSNBC on Wednesday, Biden brought up Putin as he relates to the ongoing Russia investigations and President Donald Trump's verbal assault on the FBI for what he claims was a conspiracy to prevent him from becoming president.

"What is Vladimir Putin's objective the last six, eight, 10 years? It is to delegitimize the west. Delegitimize them," Biden told Andrea Mitchell. "So, here you have the president of the United States of America saying that the single most important domestic law enforcement agency is not relevant, is not reasonable, is not honest, is not all those things.

"Putin must be sitting behind his desk in the Kremlin going, 'It's working, man.' The rest of the world gets the message that the United States of America's chief law enforcement agency is not truthful, is not honest, is plotting against them, is a deep state. My God."

Two Republican-written memos made public in the last week detail the process that led to the FBI obtaining a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in October 2016. Their release has led to further allegations senior FBI and Department of Justice officials participated in a conspiracy to help Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
