  • The Ukraine Conspiracy Theory

    The US intelligence agencies briefed Congress on the old, debunked idea that the Russians have and are still promoting that Ukraine, and not Russia interfered in the 2016 US election. This false idea was once again debunked in the impeachment enquiry by Fiona Hill on Thursdays testimony. Apparently, the Republicans in Congress, both House and Senate along with Trump, are still promoting this false information.

    That is directly affecting the security of the United States and supporting Russia, who is the enemy of the West and the United States. Ukraine had no part in the interference of the 2016 US election. As has been already demonstrated and proven, both by the US intelligence agencies and the Mueller Report, it was Russia that is guilty.

    Expert after expert in the House impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump testified about one key fact: That Ukraine had no role interfering in the 2016 elections to help Hillary Clinton. And one key witness sounded the alarm even louder.

    "This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves," said
    Fiona Hill
    , Trump's former top Russia adviser,
    in testimony that reflects
    what US intelligence officials have privately told lawmakers in recent months.

    But to House Republicans, that's all just a bunch of talk.

    Asked after Hill's testimony if he believed Ukraine interfered in the 2016 elections, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said: "I think they did."

    McCarthy is hardly alone. Amid the impeachment fight where Trump is demanding loyalty from congressional Republicans, most are unwilling to break from the President -- even on a matter that national security experts warn could help Russia in its efforts to undermine Ukraine.

    Moreover, US intelligence officials who briefed senators in recent months have reiterated the point that Russia has been engaging in a years-long effort to shift the blame of Moscow's interference in the 2016 election to Ukraine, a message that has been echoed during public testimony by Hill and other witnesses in the impeachment inquiry.

    But even Republicans who have sat for the closed-door depositions before the impeachment probe refuse to accept the notion that Ukraine had no role in interfering in 2016. And asmid Trump's continued criticism of the country, some won't even accept the idea that Ukraine is a "key strategic ally."

    Senators were briefed on Russian campaign to blame Ukraine for 2016 election meddling in the fall

    From CNN's Zachary CohenIn a classified briefing this fall, US intelligence officials told senators and their aides that Russia has engaged in a years-long campaign to shift the blame away from Russia and onto Ukraine for interfering in the 2016 American presidential campaign, according to two US officials.
    That briefing aligns closely with Thursday’s testimony from Fiona Hill, President Trump’s former top Russia expert. The message conveyed by US intelligence officials to lawmakers also takes on new relevance as many of those conspiracy theories have been increasingly repeated by Republican lawmakers.
    Senators were told that the Russian disinformation operation focused on a handful of Ukrainians who openly criticized or sought to damage Trump’s candidacy — efforts that were significantly less organized than the multi-faceted election interference push ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin, one US official said, confirming details first reported by the New York Times.
    US intelligence officials also told lawmakers that Russia used intelligence operatives to spread now debunked conspiracies, along with established facts, to frame Ukraine for the interference in the 2016 campaign, the official said.
    Russian intelligence officers conveyed that information to prominent Russians and Ukrainians, including oligarchs, to pass along to US political figures and some journalists who likely were unaware of where it came from, according to the same official.
    The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which primarily oversees efforts to counter foreign election interference, declined to comment.

      Where did the evidence come from to charge Manafort?
      "I don't discuss sitting presidents," Mattis tells NPR in an interview. "I believe that you owe a period of quiet."

        Check the Mueller Report if you are concerned about it.

          Is it that hard for you to admit?

          The evidence came from Ukraine.

            And...your point is what? Manafort is a scumbag and got what he deserved. And it looks like it isn't over yet.
