John Kennedy (R-LA) last week who he thought was responsible for hacking the emails of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton's campaign, Kennedy refused to say definitely whether Russian Federation or Ukraine was responsible.

"I don't know, nor do you, nor do any others", he replied.

With House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump centering on the allegation that he withheld military aid to Ukraine in exchange for politically advantageous investigations while Ukraine was at war with Russian Federation, this latest news suggests rank and file Congressional Republicans have concluded that even with a dearth of supporting evidence, publicly deriding Ukraine for interfering in the election will provide a veneer of legitimacy to the Trump-requested investigations. "All I've seen is press reports that no one has validated". "It wasn't Ukraine. Russia was behind the stolen DNC emails and [John] Podesta and all that good stuff".

Graham has a record of disagreeing with Trump on military and intelligence issues, and usually sides with the military and the United States Intelligence Community (USIC) on national security concerns.

Republican Senator John Kennedy turned NBC's "Meet the Press" into "Meet the Propagandist" when he once again echoed Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump's debunked talking points claiming Ukraine interfered in the 2016 US elections.

Apple could have two iPhone launches a year from 2021
Four iPhones with 5G means there'll be enough 5G coverage in the US to push such a move inside 2020. Analysts note if Apple launches 5G phones next year, it would encourage customers to upgrade.

"I do not believe we can go forward as a nation until we punish Russian Federation", he said during an interview on NBC. "They did try to undercut Clinton". "I think Iran did".

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) departed from conspiratorial talking points pushed by his Republican colleagues' regarding Ukraine and their supposed interference in the 2016 election, as he insisted on Tuesday that Russian Federation is "1,000 percent" the tampering culprit in that race.

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.

"Was the Kremlin's interference in our 2016 election a hoax?"

Some Republicans on the House intelligence committee are championing a discredited conspiracy theory (also embraced by Trump) that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election.
