Sen. Lamar Alexander: It’s a ‘Mistake’ for Trump to Peddle Russian Propaganda
Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) said on Sunday that it bothered him that President Donald Trump pushed the Ukrainian president to investigate a long-debunked conspiracy theory surrounding the Democratic National Committee server hack in the 2016 election, calling it a “mistake.”
“Does it bother you that the President of the United States is reiterating Russian propaganda?” Todd asked, referencing the fringe-right theory that the DNC server is currently in Ukraine and wasn’t hacked by Russia.
“Yes. I think that’s a mistake,” Alexander responded. “I mean, if you see what’s happening in the Baltic states, where Russians have a big warehouse in Saint Petersburg, in Russia, where they’re devoted to destabilizing western democracies.”
