Seven days after Sen. John Kennedy claimed that he did not know whether Ukraine or Russia was to be blamed for hacking the DNC server in the duration of the 2016 election, Kenndy left to meet Chuck Todd, the Press anchor surprised when he put accusation on the ex-president of Ukraine of doing work for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
What most captivating part of their interview on Sunday was when Todd highlighted the Kennedy’s eventual withdrawing his own DNC remarks, questioning the Louisiana lawmaker the reason why he backtracked.
The Republican Senator, in reply to this, stated that Well, Chris Wallace was taking his interview and he questioned him and he simply responded to that. He said that he thought he was asked if Ukraine had intruded in the 2016 election, Kennedy said with confidence, reiterating the previous excuses he gave. He continued, he was asked if Ukraine was to be blamed for hacking the DNC computer, which is, obviously a form of intruding. He went back and took a look at the transcript and then realized that Chris was right and he was wrong hence he stated he was wrong.
The NBC News host continued to observe that the foremost criticism Kennedy has faced in lately is that he is confused or mixing what Russia, as well as, Ukraine did during the 2016 election, adding that Kennedy is apparently doing dirty work of the American President Trump for him.
At the same time, Kennedy stressed that there was adequate evidence that Ukraine had done interference in the elections conducted in 2016 on behalf of Hilary Clinton, mentioning a few of articles for claiming that a lot of Ukrainian officials intruded in the election on either the platform of social media or otherwise.
