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 USA elections.

In a July telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Trump asked Zelenskiy to look into a conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russian Federation, interfered in the 2016 election and that an email server used by the Democratic Party was hidden in the country. "While Democrats reflexively dismiss these truths as conspiracy theories, the facts are indisputable and bear heavily on the Democrats' impeachment inquiry".
