Sen.Ted Cruz (R-Texas) criticized Ukraine’s “blatant interference” in favor of Hillary Clinton in the 2016 elections he made in statements to NBC’s Dec. 8 “Meet the Press” program.
When asked if he believed Ukraine had interfered in the 2016 U.S. elections, the senator answered, “I do. And I think there is considerable evidence,” Cruz said to presenter and activist Chuck Todd, considered the Democrats’ spokesman.
“On the evidence, Russia clearly interfered in our election, but here’s the game the media is playing because Russia interfered, the media pretends nobody else did,” Cruz argued.
“Ukraine blatantly interfered in our election. The sitting ambassador from Ukraine wrote an op-ed blasting Donald Trump during the election season,” he continued.
He also alluded to the media’s intention to avoid such interference, in favor of the candidate Hillary Clinton.
“I understand that you want to dismiss Ukrainian interference because they were trying to get Hillary Clinton elected, which is what the vast majority of the media wanted anyway,” Cruz concluded.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has yet to recover from the failure of the election campaign. Clinton spoke out on Howard Stern’s Dec. 5 radio show.
This time she pointed to Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders as an ally of Russia and responsible for her losing the presidency in the 2016 elections because of his delay in supporting her, although he eventually did.
Clinton had previously targeted Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard as one of the “favorites” of Russian electoral hackers, according to the Western Journal.
Clinton also pushed a long and costly investigation against the legitimacy of President Donald Trump, in which no evidence of collusion with Russia was found.
