Fiona Hill was the big star yesterday, with some outlets even posting stories about her heroics as an 11 year old. Apparently, someone set one of her pigtails on fire and she put it out.

One of the bigger moments, though, was her ridiculous assertion that Ukraine didn’t meddle in the 2016. Not only that, she then went on to claim that it’s purely “Russian propaganda” to believe all the evidence that’s stacked up to prove it happened.

I wrote an entire piece taking that assertion apart, so be sure to check that out (see Fiona Hill Falsely States Ukraine Didn’t Interfere in 2016, Gets Fact-Checked During Hearing)

The definitive report on Ukrainian interference in 2016 came all the way back in 2017. Ken Vogel published a report detailing numerous attempts to handicap Trump’s chances of winning, including direct collusion between a DNC operative and the Ukrainian embassy.

Despite all that, the left and Democrats have decided that it’s best to just tell people not believe their lying eyes. One of those doing that? Politico themselves. Yes, they are disowning their own reporting because orange man bad.

Here’s another Politico “journalist” getting called out as well.

You’d think if Politico had one ounce of integrity, they’d be calling out people who question their reporting on Ukrainian interference. Instead, they pretend they never reported on it. It’s gaslighting to the extreme. News outlets are so obsessed with “owning” Trump that they can’t even be counted on to stand behind their own, on the record assertions.

If that strikes you are insane, congrats. You are more cognizant of reality than your average journalist.
