Graham Says Ukraine Did Not Hack DNC Emails
December 3, 2019 at 3:57 pm EST By Taegan Goddard


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told CNN that he is “1,000% confident” that Russia, not Ukraine, meddled in the 2016 presidential election, breaking from President Trump and others in his party who have pushed the discredited conspiracy theory.

Said Graham: “It was the Russians. I’m 1,000% confident that the hack of the DNC was by Russian operatives, no one else.”

He added: “I’ve got no doubt that it was the Russians who stole the DNC emails. It wasn’t Ukraine. Russia was behind the stolen DNC emails and Podesta and all that good stuff.”

9. Maybe he feels safe with Trump out of the country?

When Trump gets back and reads about it, Graham will claim he was misquoted or something. That should be enough to mollify Trump, who often doesn't remember all the people he's mad at.

5. I think there's so much evidence that they can't deny it anymore.

Interesting that they're commenting on it publicly, however.

14. This. Guessing he's backing off one indefensible position is all,

though not entirely; and their/his wannabe loyal voters will obligingly promptly forget it existed. He followed that with

"So as to the Ukraine, they had zero to do with the hacking of the DNC and the stealing of the emails. Whether or not people from the Ukraine met with DNC operatives, I don't know. All I've seen is press reports that no one has validated."


So sounds like they could be hiding the DNC server, a conspiracy beloved on their whack jobs and their Whackjob in Chief.

Meanwhile, about 2 hours ago, at almost the same time, the WSJ came out with this, but I couldn't access the rest:

Senate Republicans Warm to Theory of Ukrainian Election Interference
Some GOP senators are embracing the idea, advanced by President Trump, that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 race, despite contradictory findings

8. With this and his call to censure

it sounds like he's trying to back up as fast as he can.

12. Yeah, I caught that, too.

Guess there's something funny about criminal wrongdoing and stolen property.
