  2. CNN has no credibility to fact check anything – Sad as it is that they were once a half decent news organisation that has been run into the ground. If they said it was raining I would look outside for myself.

  3. CNN is still doing fact checks? 👌Lets fact check how many congress members and members of their families have " business" dealings in the Ukraine.

  4. You should refuse to transmit their lies. Period. Trump is a sick sociopath and for some reason, the GOP is following this megalomaniac. Let them talk to themselves. We the people have heard enough. Let his base stand there with a beer in one hand and their dicks in the other and exchange these lies. Get 'em Russian pen pals.

  5. The proof is in the pudding. Russia helped Trump. What’s the evidence? The fact of the concessions that Rump has made to Russia on everything from then conflict in Syria to N Korea and trying to get Russia back in NATO. He defends and apologizes for Putin every time he can. Enough evidence for me

  6. Sad day for America when the Republicans discard the findings of their own agencies and accepts the word of Russian propaganda as the truth.

  7. Jim Scuitto please stop bs-ing the american people. the senator is not supporting trump's facts; he is in FEAR of trump; they all are!

  8. Mass shooting in New Orleans this weekend, Senator Kennedy. Your state leads the nation in gun violence. What are you doing for your citizens?

  9. It's not a fact check, it's a BS proof. Kennedy proves when your an idiot, Putin will always find a way to make you useful.

  10. Thanks CNN for allowing him to continue to spread more lies on your network. I can't wait for his next interview you have for him. Continue to help them reelect Trump. Good job

  11. Maybe the Russians have something on Kennedy??? Certainly there seems to be a Russian cabal operating at the highest levels of government in America. Could we be so naive as to think that Russia has NOT been recruiting spies for decades? And if Russia has been recruiting spies; would it not make sense to activate all of the spies in earnest now since the Russians got their guy, Donald Trump, elected in 2016? Time to wake up, America!

  12. Democrats, DNC asked ukraine to look for dirt on trump Ukraine couldn’t find anything but handed manaford to mueller

  13. They didn't hide what they were doing because they knew the TRUMPTURD would tell them how much we know and they could go around it. GOP+NRA+KKK=KGB

  14. 63 millions citizens. Put trump in the WH the problem is you don’t believe it.
    What about the Russia BS you plotted a coup to take down a president of USA. Didn’t CIA plot coups in other country. Be patient, the IG reporrt is coming out, then Durham . You’re in on the plot too

  15. None of what this idiot Kennedy says matters because it doesn't change that Trump was engaging in coercion and bribery. Full Stop!

  16. Ummm aren't these the SAME agencies that told us Sadaam had weapons of mass destruction ?
    Oh yeah those government agencies should be trusted !
    Just pointing out the obvious !

  17. Only Christians support our president because the rest of us aren't that stupid. Talking snake, talking donkey, man living in a whale, 500 year old boat builder, resurrecting dead humans from their graves like a Hollywood zombie movie, the list of what Christians believe to be real is so far outside reality, president Trump fits in perfectly. These Trump voters seem to lack a 5th grade level of science education, which given what they believe is true, makes it pretty obvious and quite embarrassing to our country. Sen. Kennedy is another fine example of this level of stupid, or at least pretending for his Christian followers.

  18. I'd like to know who had a talk with Kennedy and forced him to make false claim even after he said he was wrong and made a mistake.

  20. I find it funny how no one was talking about Ukraine a year ago. Once this dumbass screws up and does something stupid they are all trying to cover his ass at this point republicans really are just his lapdogs.

  21. Senator Kennedy might try to throw us off scent of Trump's CURRENT
    crimes by creating puzzlement about who hacked the 2016 DNC server. The
    US intelligence community investigated all that and concluded it was
    Russia. If Trump tries making that lie an issue 3 years later and
    Kennedy plays along…he is acted deluded and all his constituents and
    fellow senators know it.

  24. They "walk back" because they know the viewer.. Fox viewers are gullible so you can say ANYTHING, they will believe it, they don't even fact check.. CNN viewers know CNN can be shit but we do know they are saying TRUTH that they want to cover.. Progressives like me watch MINIMUM 5 channels to hear so that we can make an informed decision. Hate BIAS.. A critical thinker would NEVER EVER watch ONLY things that confirm their bias.. Are you a Patriot or are you for Party??

  25. It's hard to listen to Senator Jellyfish. I really hope that he doesn't actually believe the nonsense he's peddling.

  26. Just how many times does the Senator blink while talking. An obvious tell when a person is lying through his teeth. What a shame.

  27. This is a warning to all enemy races on this planet and it goes against those who are against those are at war against Canada, America, Armenia, Israel, Ireland and England. This is a serious message to those who are with the wrong Germans, Sino Asians, Sino Chinese, North Korean, Scottish, Azerbaijani, Arabs, Colombian, Cuban, Turkish and Iranian you are a threat to us you must all get punished for threatening the Jewish and their allied nations and countries. There is from here full genocide and war against you all and there are other races coming here in order to kill your races and bring all your places and things down. These races are the angels, fairies, sirenes, changelings, spirit beings, humanoids, other human races, creatures, animals and insects. You have been told before but this is a world wide message to all enemy humans and animals here on this planet. We are starting to do full searches on all enemy race's places and things from tonight on and no one will get in our way. Generally it will come down to March, 2, 2020 when the arrests and killings will start and there is no getting away from any thing we will do every thing and we will be coming with our troops and groups and there is no stopping us. This is our final message to planet Earth and it's people and from here on we are only going to confront those who joined Jordan, Azerbaijan, Hong Kong, Eastern Germany, Scotland, North Korea, Taiwan, Pakistan, Colombia and Cuba. You all will get brought in and those who serve with them will get punished fully for hurting our races and places. We will claim victory and take over this world!

  28. Bar should be impeached too, & removed from office, Current and former law enforcement officials have said that, when presented with information about a possible plot to undermine the U.S. election, they had a duty to investigate, and it would have been wrong not to have launched an investigation.

    In the months since, Barr, through Durham, has pursued information related to a onetime associate of Papodopoulos, a European academic named Joseph Mifsud.

    Mifsud was publicly linked to Russian interference efforts in late 2017, when Mueller revealed Papodopoulos had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the details of his interactions with Mifsud.

    Shortly after his name surfaced publicly, Mifsud told Italian media he did not work for Russia. “I never got any money from the Russians: my conscience is clear,” Mifsud told La Repubblica. “I am not a secret agent.”

    Since then, the professor has disappeared from public life, leading to a host of theories about him and his whereabouts. While court papers filed in Mueller’s investigation suggested Mifsud operated in Russia’s interests, Papadopoulos, conservative

  29. Ukraine's Devin Archer – Barisma Board Member along with Hunter Biden
    Was a main financial supporter of JOHN KERRY POLITICAL CAREER
    VP Biden met with Devin Archer in Ukraine
    Two days after – Hunter Biden appointed to Barisma Board and collects $50k plus 2.4 million dollar bonuses (American Tax Dollars)
    Soon after Obama approves a 1.4 Billion (AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS) to a Ukraine Banker
    3 month Ukraine Banker Loses 1.4 Billion (AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS)
    NO INVESTIGATION ON THE MISSING 1.4 BILLION (AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS) BY OBAMA STATE DEPARTMENT.
    Barisma donates million of (AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS) to the Clinton Foundation and More Democrats.
    Ukraine realizes the corruption and begins prosecuting, Devin Archer and many of the Barisma Board Members including our favorite, Hunter Biden
    VP Biden, QUID PRO QUO, Fire the prosecutor who's investigating Barisma and Hunter or you don't the billions of (AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS)
    2 hours later the Ukraine Government fires the prosecutor investigating Barisma and Hunter, VP Biden brags about his Mobster extortion tactics on World Wide TV
    (Democrats are so proud – VP Biden is a BAD ASS – to funny) Where is the hysteria of the media with blatant EXTORTION TACTICS
    There is so much more, do you want me to connect the dots to Obama and Hillary
    Its easy since there is a plethora of video evidence of the failed witnesses during the investigation hearings
    Obama approved everything and new evidence is surfacing about Uranium One and the corruption
    Obama sell Putin and Russia 20% of our Uranium Rights so they can arm the world with Nuclear weapons
    WHAT DUMB ASS (OBAMA AND HILLARY) PUTS AMERICA AND ITS CITIZENS IN HARMS WAY BY GIVING RUSSIA THE UPPER HAND – DEMOCRATS THAT'S WHO!
    Obama fucking hates American with a passion, HE WAS THE BIGGEST RACIST EVER.
    You idiots who voted for him should be shot along with his ass.
    For those Americans who don't know shit about how our judicial system operates or the rules of evidence.
    Look it up and then you'll realize the democrats,have absolutely nothing to impeach Trump.

    The investigation hearing and the Democrats leading questions and witness obvious responses, would not be allowed in a deposition and or trial.
    First the attorneys would object to every leading or unfounded testimony and would be stricken from testimony and not admissible in trial as evidence.
    Every question the Democrats asked of each witness were 100% leading questions. Easy for an average intelligent human to decipher (unless your head is buried in your ass)
    As a professional witness: Not one bit of evidence was presented sufficient to prosecute anyone. Why Trump'S LAWYERS SAID FUCK YOU AND YOUR SO CALLED TRIAL.
    AMERICA Loves Trump's Fuck YOU to the Democrats and their impeachment hearings.

    Worse off is during Obama and Hillary term, Ambassador Stevens was brutally murdered while Obama and Hillary watched As many Americans died that hour.
    For 14 days Obama personally, along with his entire administration LIED about the video. NO MEDIA OUTRAGE.
    His daughters and wife had to watch his demise, how heart breaking.
    Ambassador Stevens was about to blow the lid off the Obama ISIS Support and money (American Tax Dollar) to terrorist organizations.
    Obama and Hillary staged the attack.
    Many Americans truly believe Democrats KILL INNOCENT AMERICANS FOR THEIR AGENDA.
    ANY TIME THE DEMOCRATS FEEL THEIR LOSING – THEY MASSACRE INNOCENT AMERICANS
    MANY ANTICIPATED IT THE OTHER DAY AND DEMOCRATS DID
    REAL AMERICANS ARE BRACING FOR THE DEMOCRATS SHOOTINGS DURING THE NEXT 12 MONTH. SHAME.

  30. Wow.
    Even with emphasized proof positive behind Russian interference, the REPUBLICAN continue to harp nonsense.
    This is the same "Deep State",the Same FAKE NEWS the Wrongwing party keeps throwing in the American people lives.
    Each and every one of these REPUBLICANS are Criminal conspirators,each with a personal bone to pick with the American people that made Obama President for eight years.
    Truly, what we are seeing is White Nationalist Rage,in All of it's misplaced glory, attacking the very country they claim to love.
    This reminds me of of several movies and graphic novels.
    'V for Vendetta, Watchmen, and 1984 comes to mind.
    From the looks of it, These people representing the government read those same books for a different reason.

  31. You people are really outrageous. Who are you going to pick on next? To throw Senator Kennedy in this ridiculous leftist scheme is so wrong. Where do you people get these lies and to twist words so grievously is terrible, how were you brought up? So disrespectful. First you say that Russia interfere in the election with Pres. Trump, which Mueller proved you all wrong. Its now that you are saying President Trump bribed the Ukrainian President, you are all over the place with lies and dragging this innocent man into it. STOP THE NONSENSE with all of this!! PLEASE! You dems are so going to lose in 2020 and even 2024, can you not see that? Well the American people sure can! You need to start reporting on other things that are going on in the world instead of all this incredible foolish and unacceptable behavior.

  32. It's not a conspiracy and next week we will all start to know the truth and you as a corrupt media channel will soon be off the air…

  33. CNN => CON; Cable Opinion Network, Change your name or change your narrative. This is not news, these are not facts, these are opinions. Your viewer base is dropping like flies, and no 'intelligent' person trusts you anymore. Your upvotes compared to downvotes speak for its self.

  34. So Putin and Russia, trying to make America. To cut ties with UKRAINE. So they can go and destroy Ukraine. Mannnnnnn! Trunp will do anything for his husband Putin!

  35. I’ll tell you who meddled in the 2016 US election: Make America Number 1, a super PAC. During the primary campaign, the super PAC was known as Keep the Promise 1. In the general election, it informally termed itself Defeat Crooked Hillary PAC. The PAC is run by Rebekah Mercer, the 2nd daughter of its largest donor Robert Mercer. Mercer donated $15.5 million to the PAC during the 2016 campaign; philanthropist Bernard Marcus donated $2 million; and Cherna Moskowitz donated $1 million. As of November 2, it had received a total of $19,586,131 in donations.
    Rebekah Mercer has been chairperson of the PAC since 2015. Its operations were headed by Kellyanne Conway from August 2015 until she was tapped to serve as the Campaign Manager of the Donald Trump campaign in mid-August 2016. The PAC also employed Stephen Bannon, who joined the campaign as CEO. After Conway's departure, David Bossie took leadership. He left in September to become Trump's Deputy Campaign Manager, and Rebekah Mercer took over leadership of day-to-day operations.

  36. Of course America's 2020 elections are not safe from Russian interference. And that's exactly how Trump wanted it. If Trump wins next year with the help of Vladimir Putin and the GOP's gullible and unpatriotic base, then democracy is effectively dead in the United States.

  37. Louisiana giving the senate a dipshit like Kennedy is comparable to farting in an elevator and immediately exiting.

  38. Reporters need to start asking Republicans what Russia has on them personally. A rude question? Maybe. But so is acting stupid on the taxpayer dime. They aren't stupid. They are parroting Russian talking points for a reason. Its likely because they are more partisan competitive than they are patriotic, however, there is a possibility some of them might be getting bribed or blackmailed by Russia. Media! Ask them!

  39. CNN FACT CHECKED… you would not beleave there where lies in every fucking video…

    I dont even want to watch any of this fucking garbage anymore… fucking garbage…

  40. This is the biggest load of shit I've heard all week. It has been proven that there is no way the DNC was hacked. The meta data proves the speeds in which the information was downloaded can only be reached by direct, on sight download, and then handed over to Wikileaks. No one in the US intelligence has ever had direct contact with the DNC server. They've only been given info from crowdstrike. I'm sure if the tables were turned all Democrats would accept that bullshit if it was the GOP and not the DNC. Oh ya and fact check… it wasn't Russia who released Hillary's emails, it was Wikileaks.

    Other world leaders can talk shit about Trump and it doesn't matter but if you talk shit about the worst candidate to ever run for President, HRC, then it's a problem? She wanted to put a no fly zone over Syria and a top general said that would be an act of war. So the a Russian military guy says they don't want war and felt that HRC would start a war and they felt Trump wouldn't… how dare they prefer not to go to war. Unfucking believable.

  41. Trump and the GOP of today are lower than shit. More morals, no values … their shadows show them with horns longer than Lucifer's.

  42. Kennedy was told to be a good puppy or else. Also, can a person that attended Oxford still be a rube? Apparently so.

  43. What CNN think they can do is steal levin's way of telling the people the truth with a black board because it was so complex… Now CNN are coping that with a school chalk board but they totally forgot one crucial point LEVIN was speaking the truth that he and his team had uncovered. CNN would not know a factual truth if it bit them on the ask…

  44. If you are dumb enough to fall for Trump supporters now being called a cult. Then you must believe that most of America is a cult. Not only that but you are also just fucking dumb and can't think for yourself.

  45. Not interested on your takes. Just point me to the evidence so I can look for myself and I’ll make the decision. If you want to watch a real documentary (with supporting evidence and interviews) on the Ukraine and ALL the players, watch Glenn Beck’s. It’s much more thorough, accurate, and in-depth.

  46. The “ intelligence “ agencies were obviously so incompetent and tech antiquated that none of them noticed that a bluff “ internet security “ “ ( That’s “CROWDSTRIKE ) advanced anti virus” “ service ‘ is a kind of NEW FYRE 2 Island party for really ignorant American Idiots kind of like these irrelevant CLUELESS Euro obsessed and Euro stalking clowns If there was election interference in 2016 it came from the US ITSELF and it’s provable

  47. MSM doesnt want to give Trump anything and to report on the deaths of 400 Iranian people executed by the "garde" would justify Trumps sanctions….
    thousands injured and imprisoned during protest against the regime, but not a single word from CNN either !?!?!?

  48. Watch PROJECT VERITAS EXPOSE FAKE NEWS PROPAGANDA CNN
    PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL NOT BE IMPEACHED BECAUSE HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING WRONG AND THE REPUBLICANS HAVE HIS BACK.
    TRUMP IS UNBEATABLE

  49. What has the Republican Party come to? I think Trump may be too clueless to realize how he is being played by Putin, but some of the Republicans were allegedly supposed to be fairly sharp people. Either they are not, after all. or they have decided that there own re-election is more important than defending our country against ongoing attacks from Russia. Think about the irony of that. The REPUBLICAN PARTY is not adequately defending America from RUSSIA. How did we get here?

  50. TERRORIST Tasha Williams/ Natasha Williams: She is being paid and housed to torture me. SHE HAS JUST ABOUT EVERYONES INFORMATION HELD FOR QUESTIONING AND LIE DETECTOR TEST SHE WOULD EXPOSE MORE AND SENT TO A FEDERAL PRISON! Last four digits of her social security number are #270-29-2745 possibly born in 1983. I heard this number in V2K a psychotic criminal and narcissistic vicious terrorist, mother with a daughter (Aisha) who is 12 years of age a child she smoked crack while pregnant and was arrested for abusing her daughter this child was sent to the emergency hospital she loss custody. Parents home went into foreclosure. Natasha Williams is located of Salem Dayton, Ohio on public assistant/public housing. Arrested for identity theft, not paying child support, child abuse, (state is paying for terrorist). She remotely rapes me every day every night. She has stripped me of most of my memories in exchange for drugs and food, if she took a lie detector and was asked how she knew so many details about my life not ever interacting with me in person ever that she simply viewed my past through the data retained in my brain as memory only Carbon Copy. This would prove that Remote Neural Monitoring was a real weapon being used to torture Americans like myself. She makes child pornography daily virtually. Black mails others perpetrators and is being housed she was in public housing in Dayton, Ohio DANGEROUS. She has created child pornography and involved in Human Trafficking for the pedophiles of Kettering, Ohio she is paid to torture innocent people in Montgomery County crack cocaine, Domino’s Pizza that is delivered often along with other criminals paid by a bank account that is in Kettering, Ohio. There is a parking lot in back of Tasha’s apartment. She has been given this apartment only because she tortures and stalks me.

  51. Dems are a joke the real crimnal s are Joe Biden and his son and that get millions from Ukraine Hillary Clinton is a crimnal to the is scam Dems think America can't see through there shit
