Senator John Kennedy is back to pushing Russian conspiracy theories again.

KENNEDY: You should read the articles, Chuck, because they are well-documented. And I believe that a Ukrainian district court in December 2018 slapped down several Ukrainian officials for meddling in our elections as a violation of the Ukrainian law. Now, I did not report those facts, and reputable journalists reported those facts. Does that mean that the Ukrainian leaders were more aggressive than Russia? No. Russia was very aggressive and they’re much more sophisticated, but the fact that Russia was so aggressive does not exclude the fact that President Poroshenko actively worked for Secretary Clinton.

TODD: My goodness. Wait a minute. Senator Kennedy, you now have the president of Ukraine saying that he actively worked for the Democratic nominee for president. I mean come on. You realize that the only other person selling this argument outside of the United States is Vladimir Putin. … You have just accused the former president of Ukraine — 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: No. Just read the articles.

You might remember that Kennedy made similar remarks last Sunday on Fox News and then took them back on CNN.

But now here he is doing Putin’s dirty work for him again. 

It’s almost as if somebody reached out to Kennedy to remind whose bitch he was and that he better get back in line.

As for his bullshit allegations about Ukraine:

Many of the claims of interference that Kennedy cites relate to Ukrainian officials making disparaging remarks about Trump during the campaign, most notably after the then-candidate made comments about the U.S. possibly recognizing Crimea as Russian territory.

These scattershot criticisms differ greatly from the top-down, large-scale interference operation that the U.S. intelligence community has concluded was ordered directly by Vladimir Putin.

Kennedy also claims that a Ukrainian court ruled that Ukrainian officials had meddled in the U.S. elections by releasing damaging information about former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. However, an appeals court later canceled that ruling, according to the Kyiv Post.

I don’t know who has dirt on who, but it is becoming very clear that some of these Trump supporters in DC don’t know what they are supposed to believe until somebody tells them, and that they fear the consequences for promoting the wrong story.

    NBC host Chuck Todd blasts Republican Senator John Kennedy for ‘spreading Vladimir Putin’s lies’ after he claimed ex-Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko ‘worked’ for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign

    ….. The comments came after Kennedy, once again clarified that he misspoke in an interview with Fox News last weekend where he said he wasn’t sure if it was Russia or Ukraine who was responsible for hacking the Democratic National Committee server during the 2016 election.

    Following that interview, Kennedy back-tracked his remarks, claiming he misheard Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace’s question.

    ‘Well, Chris Wallace was interviewing me and he asked me a question. I answered it. I thought he had asked me if Ukraine had meddled in the 2016 election,’ Kennedy clarified to Todd. ‘He didn’t, he asked me if Ukraine was responsible for hacking the DNC computer, which is, of course, a form of meddling. I went back and looked at the transcript and I realized Chris was right and I was wrong so I said I was wrong.’

    Alan Dershowitz: Trump’s Not a King… He’s ‘Far More Powerful Than’ That, Has Powers ‘Kings Have Never Had’

      “The judge went out of her way to say I’m not ruling on the issues of privilege, all I’m saying is he has to show up. Then she went nuts talking about how the president’s not a king. Of course the President’s not the king. The President’s far more powerful than the king. The President has the power that kings have never had.”

      Der$HOWitz concluded by saying “the framers wanted it that way,” and he bashed the possibility of impeachment by pointing to the “very strict criteria” of the Constitution.

    Tucker Carlson Claims He Was Only Joking When He Said ‘I’m Serious, Why Shouldn’t I Root for Russia, Which I Am’

    ….. “Why do I care, why do I care what is going on in the conflict between Ukraine and Russia?” Carlson exclaimed. “And I’m serious. Why do I care. Why shouldn’t I root for Russia, which I am.”

    “Because those of us watching — myself — think preserving democracy is important,” Goldstein replied.

    “I don’t care!” Carlson shot back.

    Carlson’s incendiary admission immediately ignited anger and pushback online.

    Fox News host Chris Wallace pushed back against Louisiana GOP Sen. John Kennedy, who repeated a debunked conspiracy theory promoted by President Trump that suggests Ukraine interfered in the 2016 presidential election on behalf of Trump’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary wasn’t an ideal candidate, but none of this would be happening had the electoral college been retired.

    ABOUT THOSE EMAILS>When Hillary got ready to run for president in 2016 and was heavily favored to win, the anti-Clinton sentiment had been festering in the Bureau for over two decades, and Giuliani and Kallstrom were well positioned to exploit it. Each man had tentacles {akaTESTICULES} still deep inside the Bureau.
    It’s worth reviewing what that was all about, since many readers may have lost track during the countless speeches and tirades that invoke “the emails” one way or another.

    Years before, in 2001, so did the FBI’s counterterrorism chief, John O’Neill, when a security violation was leaked to the press by someone in the Bureau who wanted him out. His career was ruined. THEN HE DIED. “O’Neill was killed on September 11, 2001, and his remains were recovered from the World Trade Center site on Friday, September 21, 2001.”
