The day after a former White House Russia expert warned about the danger of propagating a "fictional narrative" that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 presidential election, President Donald Trump went on national TV Friday and pushed that very conspiracy theory.
The presidents continued fixation on the debunked theory came the morning after former National Security Council official Fiona Hill, during her public testimony to impeachment investigators, warned that advancing the false narrative only plays into Russias hands.
Some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country-and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves, Hill said. I would ask that you please not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests.
The president also accused David Holmes, a diplomat at the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, of making up his sworn public testimony he gave alongside Hill Thursday regarding a phone call Holmes said he overhead between Trump and Sondland during which Holmes said he could hear Trump asking Sondland about "investigations." Trump said that was a total phony deal.
How about the guy with the telephone? I guarantee you that never took place, Trump said. I've been watching guys 40 years make phone calls and I can't hear, you could be two feet away I can't hear people making calls.

The deep state is panicking as the noose tightens.
That look when just saying debunked doesn’t work any better than saying racist or Nazi.
I guess those two don’t know about the investigation that came up empty.

She is supposed to be smart and can’t figure out that more than one country could have been involved.
Debunked, just like the Kenyan’s birth certificate that was proved a fraud on Free Republic.
Debunked. You mean like your Epstein report?
You would think that hunting down the mole who outed their pedophile tendencies would distract the ABCers from lying about Trump...
If I see the words “debunked” or “fact check”, I immediately stop reading.
The only thing ‘deBunked’ is Kamala Harris..............
Debunked? Please link me to the prosecutor’s report.
just heard a whopper from chris wallace who insisted he doesn’t opine on stories, he just reports the news-
ABC “News” lies about everything.
I think she set an all-time record for total time speaking during testimony!
So, the new narrative amongst the MSM pinheads is to proclaim that the corruption being uncovered in Ukraine has been debunked.
Wow, this is the best they can do? The endgame must be approaching rather quickly if this nonsense is all they can come up with.
Who owns Crowdstrike? That will tell you whether the theory is debunked or not.
Is it like Chris Cuomo debunking with his mother that a phone call can’t be overheard? When no one could hear Mom he switched her to speaker phone. Oh right.. when you get caught it’s a parody.
And democrats continue to pursue debunked impeachment inquiry.
So, what’s their point?
‘Debunked’ means some liberal says it isn’t true.
