Chuck Todd Gobsmacked When GOP Senator Accuses Ex-Ukrainian Prez of ‘Actively’ Working for Clinton

John Kennedy (R-LA) left Meet the Press anchor Chuck Todd astounded when he accused the former president of Ukraine of working for Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“Actively worked for Secretary Clinton?!
