Chuck Schumer: GOP senators spreading Russian propaganda to defend Trump

This Is the ‘Politically Expedient’ Impeachment Defense Republican Lawmakers Are Backing

Republican Senator John Kennedy turned NBC's "Meet the Press" into "Meet the Propagandist" when he once again echoed Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump's debunked talking points claiming Ukraine interfered in the 2016 US elections.

When CNN reporter Suzanne Malvaeux pushed back on Kennedy's remarks by pointing out that Hill's debunking is not an opinion, given her Russian Federation expertise and former government position, Kennedy reportedly dodged and pointed out articles that he believes support the DNC-Ukraine conspiracy theory.

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) has gone back to touting President Trump's DNC-Ukraine conspiracy theory after retracting his claim last week.

In a July telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Trump asked Zelenskiy to look into a conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, interfered in the 2016 election and that an email server used by the Democratic Party was hidden in the country.

Hale said he had no reason to doubt testimony by former White House expert Fiona Hill, who told the impeachment inquiry into Trump that the Ukrainian meddling theory was propaganda spread by Russian Federation.

"Every elected official in the Ukraine was for Hillary Clinton", Burr told NBC News. "The President can say that they meddled because they had a preference, the elected officials, that's not the current people". "The charge that Ukraine had something to do with election meddling in 2016 is a lie spread by [Russian President] Vladimir Putin to get things off his back". A day after telling Wallace that Ukraine had interfered in the election, Kennedy told Chris Cuomo on CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" that he had misunderstood Wallace's question and his response had been mistaken.

"These fictions are harmful even if they are deployed for purely domestic political purposes", former national security aide Fiona Hill told a congressional committee.

Asked at a hearing by Democratic Sen. "I know that I've read that the Intelligence Committee made some kind of finding, I don't know what it was".
