GOP senator backtracks on Ukraine: ‘I was wrong’


Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) backtracked on claims he made on Fox News that no one can be sure it was only Russia who tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, saying he misunderstood the question and that he sees no evidence that Ukraine hacked the DNC server.

    Kennedy looked at the backlash from his Fox interview and realized that he looked really bad and nobody was buying it.

  4. John Kennedy is somebody’s elderly grandmother.

  5. Interesting he said “I was wrong” @ChrisCuomo CNN, he needs to go back at fawx and say ‘I was wrong’ there.

  6. I believe Kennedy is a liar and acting like a my kids when they are caught in a lie. The GOP needs a shakedown!!! Take back our country!

    • @Kristi Marie You do know that he will not be removed from office by the senate right? You cant remove a president because of hearsay and speculation to his motives. That is quite literally what you have for evidence.

    • @Daniel Doyle But….but…..but Russia. You sound pathetic, but hey at least Joe McCarthy would be really proud of you with your red scare bullshit.

    • @Hollowhammer you’re deluded if you listen to the Donald and don’t realize that he is and always has been a narcissistic conman

      @Hollowhammer um…no. the facts are: Hillary Clinton had at LEAST 3 million more votes. That’s a proven fact. It is also a proven fact that Russia interfered with our election. It is also a proven fact that Trump has obstructed justice, paid off hookers and porn stars to keep their mouths shut about his infidelities, admitted to sexually assaulting women, has a huge (proven) past of discrimination against African Americans and other minorities, has a multitude of failed/bankrupt businesses (proving he is a shitty businessman), lies incessantly, refuses to release his tax returns (that will likely prove his collusion and the fact that he isnt nearly as wealthy as he would love for you trump dumpsters to believe), praises and associates with corrupt dictators, extorts foreign leaders, and is the most racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, homophobic, elitist president we have had in more than 50 years.
      All of that is proven.
      Yeah, we ‘leftists’ have some pretty strong feelings about all that. And if you dont, you’re a flaming idiot… just like Trump.

      @Kristi Marie he would know that if he had more than 3 active brain cells.

  7. “This will be the first partisan impeachment in history.” I was there for the Clinton impeachment. Clinton had a girlfriend, and the Republicans were … Dear Old White Men, you know what? Never mind.

  8. This is one of our “leaders?!?!?!” Funny how all these “leaders” seem to have such a hard time understanding what constitutes evidence. Nor do they appear able to determine the facts at any given moment. What kind of leaders are these people who don’t look to be able to tell the difference between their asses and a hole in the ground?

    • “They” all look uneducated to me…if they are the “representatives” of their states then what does that say about the constituents? uneducated therefore ignorant and susceptible to brainwashing by screaming politicians like Kennedy?

    • Upton Sinclair said it: “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” Or in this case, his next election.

  9. “tried to hack”

    try again you right wing partisan hack russian asset.

  10. It’s only a partisan impeachment Kennedy, when the GOP refuse to acknowledge the facts presented by 12 non-partisan witnesses.
    There is not 1 witness that agrees with Donny’s interpretation.
    2 other self-incriminating points…
    – Donny refuses to allow his inner circle to testify.
    – If Donny was so anti-corruption, why wasn’t his focus across the whole of Ukraine? One company that is attached to the Biden name, looks extremely narrow.
    Door sign on the GOP lounge… “Please leave morals and character at the front door“.

  11. John Kennedy just creeps me out. I can’t listen to him. He is like an evil swamp monster.

  12. I’d like to see this GOP Senator say what he said at the beginning that he was wrong on Fox.

  13. Kennedy:” I’m telling you what I believe Chris.” Damn the facts.🤦🏼‍♀️ Unbelievable🙄

    • Amazing Grace he also believes that the moon is made of green cheese and the sun revolves around the earth.

    • One of the most insidious things that political extremists have managed to do, the majority on the right but also some on the left, is to inject the idea that facts are equal to opinions and vice versa into American thought. When enough of the populations accepts the idea that there is no such thing as objective consensus reality, democracy can’t survive and tyranny is inevitable.

    “The president is not being allowed to present his own evidence”
    …well then testify under oath…

    • @Dennis The Only Solution Your comments are not even readable english.

    • @jim harmon Oh please… more lies and BS ?

    • @jim harmon Congress would be happy to hear Drumpf’s “evidence”. All he has to do is come to Congress and testify under oath

    • Dahomian
      They would not listen to the leader of the house , they even lied to her . Even Shifty boy is rethinking it . Ended up with a basket of hot air . Worse than when they started . It was their witnesses. . How bad is that . Shifty boy couldn’t make a soup sandwich , he would give it a try if he thought it would get Trump out . Dems will have to call for a vote , or face failure , but I bet Shifty is wanting it not to pass .

    • Vagajammer
      He will not have to . When Trumps lawyers get through with Shifty and the Biden’s the Dems will want to.stop the process .

    He’s stuttering all over himself during this conversation that is nervousness in its own right!

      Russia didn’t hack DNC server Seth Rich stole that data it’s only hearsay Russia did it no one see the server if it was Russia that server would have been handed over C’mon it was only looked at by a Democrat company so Freado and is BS is wrong he lies everyday not Trump this clown covers for Democrats to break law Hillary paid 11million from campaign funds to get dirt on Trump from Ukaraine Collusion and campaign funds violation then Biden withheld Billions from Ukaraine unless prosecutor was fired that’s is own addmision on TV Quid pro quo FACT Then Democrats wrote a letter to Ukaraine president saying they would stop aid unless they stopped the investigation into the election Quid pro quo can you honestly say that’s ok then they accused Trump of what they do themselves themselves

    • @Dennis The Only Solution Hillary is not president is she? Don’t try to make it OK what Trump supposedly did..Stand up for your country first not a man/woman..

      @Kristi Marie amen.

    • The Republicans have sold their soul to The Devil in defense of the Orange buffoon…

    With Senators like this it’s easy to see why the US is so screwed up.

    • Travis Patterson, PhD | November 26, 2019 at 9:33 PM | Reply

      With idiots like you, who think Russia has an exclusive right to election interference, its easy to see why there are still people that believe CNN is real news.

    • @Travis Patterson, PhD have you watched any of the impeachment? Clearly either you are stupid or delusional. You may want to give back that PhD to whatever diploma mill you bought it from. Real PhD’s think critically, rely on facts and don’t jump to ignorant conclusions (assuming you know where I get my news).

    • Brandon Averette | November 26, 2019 at 10:23 PM | Reply

      The impeachment was stupid and proved nothing I watched the whole thing. Potus was guilty in your eyes before impeachment started. Heck was guilty by your opinion. This whole thing is ignorant. Wait until a trial Schiff biden wil have to testify. It will all come out my friend

    “We’ll just have to agree to disagree.” That’s Republican for “We don’t have an argument.”

    • Travis Patterson, PhD | November 26, 2019 at 9:32 PM | Reply

      No, you are wrong. The issue that Cuomo will not come to grips with and discuss, is that it is possible other countries tried to interfere in the election, aside from Russia. No one has claimed that Russia did not try to interfere. The claim is that Ukraine tried to interfere as well. Cuomo wont admit that point, so there is nothing one can do but ‘agree to disagree’…

    “I care what the president thinks.” 🤣 how can he say that with a straight face? Lol

  20. “There is a lot of evidence, proven and unproven…”
    What a BS artist.

    • Paolo Facciolo | November 26, 2019 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      mrdfac Exactly. Now we are going to allow unproven propaganda as evidence. I’m so glad I live in Canada. Uncle Trump has created an already somewhat divided country into a country of hatred for anyone with different skin colour, religion, gender, military history, birth country, …… This is a nightmare going to get worse.
