Chuck Todd Busts Sen. John Kennedy Pushing Russian Propaganda

Chuck Todd called out Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) for pushing a conspiracy theory on Ukraine election interference that belongs to Putin.

Kennedy said on NBC’s Meet The Press, “Dr. Hill is entitled to her opinion. And I believe that a Ukrainian district court in December of 2018 slapped down several Ukrainian officials for meddling in our elections. The fact that Russia was so aggressive does not exclude the fact that President Poroshenko actively worked for Secretary Clinton. Now if I’m wrong, and if –”

Todd broke in, “Actively worked for Secretary Clinton? — my goodness. Wait a minute. Senator Kennedy. You now have the president of Ukraine saying he actively worked for the Democratic nominee for president. Come on. I’ve got to put up — you realize the only other person selling this argument outside the United States is this man, Vladimir Putin. You have done exactly what the Russian operation is trying to get American politicians to do. Are you at all concerned that you have been duped?”

Kennedy answered, “No.”

The Republican impeachment defense of Trump is Russian propaganda. Sen. Kennedy isn’t concerned about being duped, because he knows that he is pushing Russian propaganda. Trump’s entire impeachment defense comes down to a conspiracy theory that fulfills Putin’s goals of smearing Ukraine, and giving Russia a cover story for their attacks on US elections.

Republicans aren’t stopping foreign election interference. They are promoting it through their desperate use of Russian propaganda to save Donald Trump.
