GOP Senator Parrots Putin’s Ukraine Lies [VIDEO]

Reuters reports:

Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) reiterated a debunked conspiracy theory on “Fox News Sunday” that Ukraine may have interfered in the 2016 presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, despite consensus in the U.S. intelligence community that Russia was responsible for the attacks.

Kennedy’s comments come after former National Security Council official Fiona Hill publicly testified in an impeachment hearing last week that the conspiracy is “a fictional narrative that is being perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.”

“The unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016,” Hill said. “This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan congressional reports.”
