The drum the media has been beating since the House Intelligence Committee began holding hearings on the Ukraine folderol has been that Ukrainian interference in the 2016 election has been debunked. Debunked in left-speak is anything that is so unpleasant to hear that you have to clap your hands over your ears, close your eyes, and start shouting “lalalalala!” We know Ukraine meddled in the 2016 elections because the media has reported on that for three years.

A couple of years ago, Chuck Grassley began inquiries on the connection between Ukraine and DNC apparatchik Alexandra “Drop the” Chalupa:

And just last week, it was announced that the investigation will involve transcribed interviews led by GOP legal counsel.
Republican senators, across the board, are becoming more noisy about the issue.
Republican senators are escalating their probe into the 2016 election, requesting interviews with people they believe may be involved with impairing the campaign of President Trump https://t.co/k2RwaNzd7x

Exactly no part of this smells like “debunked” is an accurate term. GOP senators are not a breed noted for going out on the limb.
So when Senator Ted Cruz appeared on Meet the Press, it was a given that Democrat shill, Chuck Todd, would bring the subject up. But what he got was not what he expected.
It started innocently enough (see 5:56).
Do you believe Ukraine meddled in the American election in 2016?
SEN. TED CRUZ:
I do. And I think there’s considerable evidence of that.
Then the fun began:
We know Ukraine meddled. Whether the value of them taking out Paul Manafort by funneling information and disinformation on him exceeded the level of meddling the Russians accomplished by $100,000 in Facebook ads and some Twitter trolls is debatable. What is NOT debatable is this. The Ukrainian government collaborated with and actively assisted the Clinton campaign with the sole goal of electing her. The Russians had one goal, according to the intelligence community, less John Brennan’s totally corrupt CIA, that was to sow discord in American politics.
Eventually, the story of foreign interference in 2016 is going to be told and when it is the people that pushed the Russia Hoax will finally look as embarrassing to themselves as they do to sane people right now.
