Mitt Romney Slams GOP Colleagues For Pushing False Theory That Ukraine, Not Russia, Interfered In Election: ‘No Evidence!’
=Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who has criticized Donald Trump before, called out his Republican colleagues who have been pushing the narrative that Ukraine actually “interfered” in the 2016 presidential election, not Russia.
Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill that what his colleagues have been pushing is a false narrative.
“I saw no evidence from our intelligence community, nor from the representatives today from the Department of State, that there is any evidence of any kind that suggests that Ukraine interfered in our elections,” Romney said, as reported by Axios. “We have ample evidence that Russia interfered in our elections.”
Multiple Republican lawmakers have been pushing the idea that Ukraine “interfered” in the 2016 election as a way to justify Trump’s attempt to withhold military aid from the country.
