Robert Mueller Target, Called ‘Russian Spy’ By Fiona Hill, Fed Ukraine Conspiracy Theory To Trump Campaign

Rober Mueller testifies.

Donald Trump believes a conspiracy theory that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 presidential election, and that is why Trump has called Ukraine a “corrupt Country” full of “terrible people” that “tried to take me down,” according to testimony by former United States envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker.

The baseless Ukraine theory was reportedly injected into the 2016 Trump campaign by Konstantin Kilimnik, who according to testimony by Fiona Hill was widely believed to be a “Russian spy.” A full transcript of the testimony by Hill, former deputy assistant to Trump for Europe and Russia, is available online via PBS.

The New York Times reported last week that the anti-Ukraine “narrative” quickly seized upon by Trump originated with Kilimnik, a close associate of Paul Manafort, who was Trump’s campaign chief for much of the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Manafort then fed the theory directly to Trump shortly after the first revelations emerged connecting Russian intelligence agents to the hack of Democratic National Committee email servers.
