Chuck Todd Goes Nuclear After Ted Cruz Mentions ‘Debunked’ Ukraine Election Meddling

Resistance activist and NBC host Chuck Todd lost his cool on Sunday after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said that Ukraine “blatantly interfered” in the 2016 US election.

Of note, less than three months before Donald Trump was elected, Ukrainian officials working with a DNC operative leaked a “black ledger” containing evidence of off-book payments to Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort – leading to his disruptive ouster, while Ukraine’s ambassador to the UK, Valeriy Chaly wrote in an Op-Ed for The Hill slamming Trump in the same month.

While Democrats have sought to ignore or downplay this as a ‘debunked’ theory, Republicans aren’t letting it go – nor are they giving the Bidens a pass for what looks like textbook corruption while then-Vice President Joe Biden was in charge of the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

Any president, any administration is justified in investigating corruption. There was serious evidence of real corruption concerning Hunter Biden. [He] was on the board of Burisma, the largest natural gas company in Ukraine. Do you know how much he was paid every month? $83,000 — that’s a million dollars a year,” said Cruz – adding “The media ought to care if there is actual corruption … Do you think Hunter Biden with zero experience justifies making ten times as much as the board member of Exxon Mobil?

Todd then asked Cruz: “Do you believe Ukraine meddled in the American election in 2016?” – to which Cruz replied “I do. And I think there is considerable evidence.”

Todd then suggested that President Trump could have created “a false narrative” in order to hurt Cruz during the 2016 Republican primary – to which Cruz shot back: “Ha, ha, ha. Except that’s not what happened. The president released the transcript of the phone call. You can read what was said in the phone call.”

“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. Ukraine blatantly interfered in our election. The sitting ambassador from Ukraine wrote an op-ed blasting Donald Trump during the election season.”

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.

For his insolence, Cruz is of course being labeled a Putin puppet – while Axios showed their true colors with the headline: “Cruz promotes conspiracy that Ukraine “blatantly interfered” in U.S. election.” – Their article, meanwhile, makes no mention of Manafort or the black ledger, which is what Cruz was referring to.

Meanwhile…

  1. Chris Tinlge oops , Mathews of Odd Ball, Morning Joke.,I mean Joe and Chuck Odd are still given air time. What a sorry lot. Put them with the view, maddow (Russia, Russia, Russia, Sharpton, AM Joy, Think about all them, the HORROR.

    1. roger that a dimwit who tries to lie to guests and get them to admit to something he just made up. here,s one . i heard it some where , from someone who heard from his friends friend, chuck and schifty are having an AFFAIR no really its true

  2. All ridiculous. The coup goes on, unopposed by anyone in authority to oppose it.
    Trump stands alone in Washington DC, and the horrible Horowitz report mitigates this coup. Save for 4 loyalists, traitors all in Washington DC. All, Republicans alike.
    Time for the American people to lash out.

  3. I have been watching Todd and MSNBC and CNN since Trump’s announcement to run for President. I believe that all these “fake news” people should be arrested, charged with crimes against humanity, crimes against Americans and the executive branch of our government. The “political pundits” are just “mouth pieces”, (audiovisual) who get paid by corporations to “black-propagandize” (techniques of psychological warfare) in a conspiratorial more often cooperative with other media to control a narrative for the benefit of the corporate entities by “brainwashing” you if you watch it. They propagate violence, racism, prejudice, ignorance and drugging and perversion and all forms of controversy with massive media coverage intriguing for profit. A WMD more than freedom of press or speech. Freedom doesn’t mean freedom to injure the lives of innocent people, Chuck. You are jaded, evidenced by your disrespect of a sitting senator. I say you should be jailed.

    1. You are 100% correct on this. I have a friend who will no longer speak to me since she found out that I voted for Trump. She is tuned into CNN and MSNBC and will not believe anything else. We had been friends for over 45 years. These people have turned our country up side down. Very sad that people believe this crap, even when the truth is right in front of them. My father was a Democrat and he left the party, after he said there was no longer a truthful person in the party. I know the Republicans are not perfect, but at least they love this country and understand what it takes to serve the people. They have brainwashed our youth, into believing that they are going to give them everything free and they will be able to just walk away from debt. What about all of us who paid for our children and ourselves to go to school. Are you going to pay me back? I also don’t want the government in charge of my health care. They cannot run the country what makes you think they will take care of you when you are sick. Yes other countries have free health care, remember your taxes will be through the roof, and you will not have a say so for your parents or yourselves. Nothing is free, someone must pay and if they get their way it will be you and I. Most of these free countries don’t have the amount of people that we do in the US, most are only an 8th of the population. If people would just use some common sense, they would figure this out. These people are power hungry. This president doesn’t take a salary and he is still is the bad guy. I would like to know how all these in congress became so wealthy. THey are scared because people know to much about all their dealings. We have got to hold tight against these traitors.

      1. Linda, I’m sorry you lost your friend of over 45 years. She wasn’t much of a friend then. She is watching the wrong channels. I hope she comes to her senses and joins us!

  4. The Progressive Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Democrat Party and the pathetic News Networks LIERS they own. Anyone with a brain, think back to what lying, cheating, rapping woman and children, stealing, murder Clintons have gotten away with. How pathetic and disgusting these Demoncrat people are. If anyone would ask Russia who they would want for president, it would have been crooked Clinton. They wanted more Uranium so they can sell it to our enemies. All they had to do is donate millions to the Clinton for them Foundation. They knew Clinton is for themselves and could care less for what is best for America. The whole Degressive Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Democrat Party apparently only cares for themselves and not America. Sadly many American citizens cannot or do not want to see it.

  5. TODD is a TOAD and who even watches CNN and MSNBC anymore since they have “CRASHED and BURNED” so MANY TIMES since 2016! No even has to think FAKE NEWS anymore all you need to say FAKE NEWS and you know who the CLUB MEMBERS including which NEWSPAPER and TALK SHOWS are affiliated with them!

  6. Seems like a lot of the demonicRATS are losing their cool. Rightly so! Many of them may soon be on trial for a number of reasons. Good luck demonicRATS. There seems to be a higher power at work

  7. “:Chuck Todd Goes Nuclear After Ted Cruz Mentions ‘Debunked’ Ukraine Election Meddling” Sorry, Todd not have enough integrity, intelligence, or testosterone to go nuclear. He may go in a corner and relieve himself, but that’s about it. US journalism has a long row to hoe if it is ever to be trusted again Todd is one of the reasons.

  8. Chuck Todd has been a liberal schill since time started. He is a liar, he is rude, ignorant and not worthy to be on the news media show. What a pig!

  9. Little Chucky reminds me of nothing but a whiny 5 year old lying to get out of trouble. It’s not worth the bother to listen to his hot air which he spews from behind podiums, ivory walls and the guns of others. He needs to be using super glue for lip gloss.

  10. They are all political hacks. The only news they know is what the left or the democraps tell them to say or print. Hey di*k boy this is the United States of America yet try being truthful just once in your miserable life.
