Romney: I’ve Seen No Evidence Of Ukraine Meddling

Axios reports:

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) broke with some of his Republican colleagues on Tuesday, telling reporters on Capitol Hill Tuesday he has seen “no evidence” Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election.

“I saw no evidence from our intelligence community, nor from the representatives today from the Department of State, that there is any evidence of any kind that suggests that Ukraine interfered in our elections. We have ample evidence that Russia interfered in our elections.”

Why it matters: Some Republicans in Congress — most notably Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) — have renewed claims recently that Ukraine meddled in the election, seeking to justify President Trump’s campaign to pressure Ukraine’s government to announce an investigation.
