  • President Trump Chuck Todd interviews Sen. John Kennedy right on “Meet the Press” on Sunday

Romney's comments underscored a divide among Republicans, some of whom are staunchly defending Trump and others who are persuaded by findings of the USA intelligence community that Russian Federation was behind systemic attempts to meddle in the 2016 election.

Asked by another senator if Giuliani remained involved in Ukraine diplomacy, Hale replied, "Not that I'm aware of".

Graham has a record of disagreeing with Trump on military and intelligence issues, and usually sides with the military and the United States Intelligence Community (USIC) on national security concerns.

A top Trump administration official on Tuesday rejected Republican talking points and declared that Russian Federation, nor Ukraine, interfered in the 2016 election. "I think Iran did".

"There is indisputable evidence that senior Ukrainian government officials opposed President Trump's candidacy in the 2016 election and did so publicly", according to a report unveiled Monday by Republicans on three House committees.

Ukraine, which depends on U.S. army help to battle Russian-backed separatists, has dismissed any suggestion of United States election interference. To Graham's dismay, this false narrative is now being championed by his Republican colleagues in the House and Senate as they strive to defend Trump against impeachment.

In a Senate Foreign Relations hearing on US policy toward Russia, David Hale, the department's undersecretary for political affairs, succinctly summed up the findings of the USA intelligence community in response to questioning from the panel's top Democrat, Sen.

Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee last month, Dr. Fiona Hill, who had been the Russian expert on the National Security Council, called the allegation "a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves".

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., has repeatedly said Ukraine meddled in the 2016 elections, most recently telling NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd, "I believe that a Ukrainian district court in December 2018 slapped down several Ukrainian officials for meddling in our elections as a violation of the Ukrainian law". They also claim Ukraine hacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and computer records were falsified to blame Russian Federation.
