State Dept. official rejects claims of Ukrainian election meddling

President Trump Chuck Todd interviews Sen. John Kennedy right on “Meet the Press” on Sunday

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.

The Ukraine interference conspiracy endorsed by Putin, Trump and now Kennedy, has been soundly debunked not only by US intelligence agencies, but also by a Republican-led Senate committee in 2017. "I have no knowledge that the Ukraine did anything to interfere with our elections other than press reports and to suggest that we know that I think would be a stretch because I don't think anybody knows that".

Romney refused to comment on other senators' views when asked if he thought it was risky when other Republicans claim that Ukraine had tried to interfere in American elections as well.

"The Ukraine, they had zero to do with the hacking of the DNC and the stealing of the emails".

"No", he replied when Menendez asked him if Russian meddling in the election was a "hoax", a word often used by Trump.

Twelve days after he said that, sources tell CNN, Chalupa met with staffers on the committee for a more-than-two-hour meeting covering a range of subjects, including why she was so alarmed in 2016 to learn that candidate Donald Trump had hired Paul Manafort, who worked with corrupt Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. Second, because Fiona Hill, a former member of the White House National Security Council, and a Russian Federation authority, was clear about what House Republicans were already doing.

"Do you have any reason to disagree with Dr. Hill?" "But it could also be Ukraine".
